There are limits to the number of characters that the different Remarks fields will accept during listing Add/Edit:
- Public Remarks= 1500 characters
- Confidential Agent Only Remarks= 500 characters
- Public Remarks (Addendum)= 2400 characters
These numbers include punctuation, spaces and carriage returns (hitting the Return/Enter key on the keyboard). Hitting the Enter key actually takes up 2 characters.
As you enter text in the field, Matrix keeps a running count and will let you know how many characters you have left:
There have been instances where users have hit the Enter key several times in a row, leaving a large blank space between paragraphs. Because the field is not very tall, it is possible that there is text that is hidden further down than the bottom of the field. This is something to keep in mind if the number of characters remaining does not align with the amount of text you see on the screen.
