SingleLine.Text or TextArea only allows edit up to 100chars

In CE Field Properties, when editing the PCF's SingleLine.Text or SingleLine.TextArea default value, cannot edit anything beyond 100chars. Should be able to edit up to the max length of the property e.g. TextArea = 4000 chars

This is a known issue. Pasting the comment from the other thread here 

 

You are correct that this limitation is unnecessarily low. We have filed an internal bug (1485549) to investigate what the actual limit set on values here should be, so this process should be fixed in a future iteration to allow for a more reasonable limit.

In the meantime, your workaround is probably the best option short of manually updating the form definitions; please be wary that there may be limits to the size allowed my form configuration metadata that may also be hit with this solution if the value you are setting is very large.

Hi @TKan ,

Do you want to edit more chars within PCF's SingleLine.Text or SingleLine.TextArea default value?

 

If you want to edit more chars within PCF's SingleLine.Text or SingleLine.TextArea default value, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

If you would like this feature to be improved, please consider submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:
