Interactive Schedule Character Limit

Matthew Johnson
I am using IFC fields to compile an interactive door schedule so that the data that we push into the objects for the schedule will also be exported in the IFC files for the quantity surveyor and contractor. For some of the more descriptive items such a door hardware (lockset, hinges, signage, etc.) I have long descriptions and there appears to be a 255 character limit on what IS will display.

Is this a set limit?

Can it be pushed out?

The IfcText field that I'm using can hold more characters when edited in the Manage IFC dialog but not in IS.

It's a fixed limit that I have raised with GS. Not sure whether they are also limited by IFC protocols
