Annotation box will not allow more than 100 characters

Previously I was able to fit more than 100 characters in the annotation text box. Now it is limiting it to 100 characters. Is there a way to allow more?

Dear Sarah,

Unfortunately, there is no way to change the configuration for the size of the text. There is a limit of 100 as you are saying. We'll share this is as an idea to know at least why this has been reduced. Thanks for your understanding.

Best regards.

I have been working in Bizagi Modeler and have created several maps using both the task boxes and the annotations boxes. Due to the changes in the the version 3.4.1.068 text limitations, I am not able to make any changes on the older maps or I will loose text from those boxes where the character count is greater than 100. The greater number of characters was allowed in previous versions. PLEASE, increase the character count to the higher number. This restriction is causing an awful large amount of rework.

Thank you so much for your help. I look forward to not having to rework my maps.

Hello Andres,

Is there any feedback on this? Limitation on characters is proving to be a huge problem.

Hi Andres

We are having the same issue since versions younger than April 2019. As far as I can tell, the 100 character limit is a completely pointless and artificial limitation placed on a user community who have been happily using [practically] unrestricted annotation text lenghts up until then. It is a maor issue when one is annotation process maps, and has more than 2 1/2 lines to say against a node. One has to either insert THREE or more Annotation notes and daisy chain them all together (and then explain to a Client why this clunkiness exists), or, use a Formatted Text box, which is a longer activity. PLEASE GET THIS 'FEATURE' REVERTED TO UNRESTRICTED, as it was until April 2019. Many thanks, Creon.

It must be possible for customers to add an annotation with no limt.

I can understand, if the length for a task is limited, although I am convinced, that it is not a good idea to domineer over the users for that.

Not all tasks are so simple, that 100 letters are enough..

I uninstalled the app due to this limitation and have not used it since. Too bad nothing is done to solve this problem.
