    Can a lot of text (text with paragraphs) be added to Multiple Text Fields widget?

    Asked by geofreeo on April 15, 2016 at 01:25 PM

    Do the text boxes provided by the multiple text field/boxes widget have a character limit? Meaning can a user input multiple paragraphs of text per box?

    While you could add a lot of text in there, it would not look right since the textboxes like that are designed for single line text entry.

    What you might be better of is the Configurable List widget with textareas within the same.

    You can see more about its setup here: How to Set Up the Configurable List Widget

    Do of course let us know if you have any further questions and we would be happy to assist with the same.
