SharePoint Funny with Multiple Lines of Text

Thought you might be interested in a SharePoint ?feature? regarding the limit on multiple lines of text fields.

If you are creating a custom column of the type “multiple lines of text” the “Number of lines for editing:” field which I was fooled into thinking was a limit is actually just how many lines to display for input, it doesn’t do any limiting.

If you want to limit user input, this java script is a good find, you will need to customise the New Item aspx file deleting the List Form Web Part in SP Designer and create a Data Form Web Part to gain access to the fields.

Hope it helps anyone interested in limiting user entry to SharePoint,
