CDM: Maximum lenght on data type "Text" and "Multiline Text" to low

The maximum lenght of 128 characters withdata type "Text" in the Common Data Model is set to low, please set it to 256 characters. Also the length of data type "Multiline Text" with 2048 characters is very low. Please set it to 64k as in other database applications.

 

This would help a lot to transfer exiting MS Access based application to PowerApps.

Hello. I have a scenario where I need more than 2048 characters in a Multiline Text. I am using a form control that takes large input from users in  a multiline text field. Now, when a user adds more characters than 2048 to the field, an error is displayed below the field - "Value must be at most 2048 chatacters in length". Can you please help me...thank you.
