    Is there a way to limit the number of words that a person is able to type in a text box/area?

    Asked by David Phillips on April 19, 2016 at 05:14 PM

    For example, a person would have 250 words maximum and there would be no way to go over that amount?

    This is possible to set the words limit with a 'Maximum Entry Limit' option, but you will need to use a 'Text Area' field type instead of the 'Text Box'.
