    Extending the number of words that user inputs in the text field

    Asked by aoliverutahgov on February 19, 2016 at 06:00 PM

    I have 2 separate text fields in a form. Originally it was set to a 100 word limit and it seems the field will not allow more than 21 words to be entered. It just stops working. I changed the field to unlimited and it does the same thing.

    Hello there,

    The problem is since maximum length of the field is set up, so just remove that and everything should work like intended, so click on your '50-100 word abstract' field and go Settings-Properties:

    After that, just change remove number 100 from this field:

    I tested and everything worked fine after that, so please check and let me know if you have any question.

    Best regards.

    This still did not work. The settings were already matching what you've described above. I reset them just in case and did a test and I still cannot submit anything longer than about 20 words for the text fields.
