Field Label Character Limit.

Hey all. I am converting a bunch of PDF forms to fillable forms, and have run into an issue.

Some of the labels for some of the fields are like 2-3 sentences long. And there seams to be a character limit on the field labels in Web Form Builder. I thought that I could use a plain text or header, but those don't pass thru in the results, so that doesn't help.

Is there a way to increase the character limit on field labels?

Hi Jackson,
If the form is on your own host you can edit the field labels after export.
You'll also need to edit them where ever they appear in the form.cfg.php. That file is located in the same directory that your formname.html is located.
You can see it working here.

I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Thanks Eric. Ya, I figured I could do that, but unfortunately that's not ideal as if I ever have to update the form it will overwrite my edited files. Hmmm. Ok, Well, thank you for your help! ;)
