Maximum length on string input field doesnt seem to work?

I have a string input field. Here I want to set a custom maximum length on the field. When I set it, it doesn't save my change and ‘Maximum length’ still shows as ‘Attribute length’.   Maybe I'm doing something wrong?    Version 9.24.2

Hi there,


Unless I’m misreading your question, the custom length appears to override the attribute length. Doing some tests with both text box and text area, I wasn’t able to enter any text above the custom length when creating new objects: 


However, when trying to edit existing objects, the text box custom length doesn’t appear to enforce the limit. But the text area widget does enforce it:



So, when creating a new object, both text box and text area work. But when editing existing objects, only the text area appears to enforce the custom length. It appears to be a limitation when the text box?


Hope this helps,
