    Text area box not allowing how many words we set it to allow

    Asked by chifunjeff on November 16, 2016 at 04:15 PM

    We use a form for our clients to submit their information. I've redone this form twice because the text area box is set to 250 word limit now a 1,000 limit. But our clients have never been able to enter more than 64 words. I even tried the form myself and it doesn't allow me to include more that 64 words.

    The text area field appears to be configured to have a limit in characters. Please remove the 'Max Length' value via field properties.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
