Custom text symbol quantity (character string length)

Anonymous

Hello,
I have a problem with schedules. There is limited quantity of text symbols in "custom text" field. It is only 255 symbols. I need much more.
Anyone knows how to expand it?
Thank you,

unfortunately 255 characters is the limit, spread the text out to multiple 'cells'. You might want to consider the lists, but they have pretty much the same limit.

Hello,

If you use exported / imported project info XML then you can use much more
characters than just 256.

Here is a test file with 2567 charactes in one autotext cell 'test'

Hope this helps.
