Could the number of allowed characters in a source field be increased? I sometimes get a message saying that the limit is 248 (I think...), whereupon everything beyond that is chopped off. There appears to be no character limit in the Notes field, though, and I have to repeat the source information there if I want to keep it.
This is not a reply to my own message, but a clarification: the 248-character limit appears in the PageRef field. I don't run into it in any other field. Can the character limit be increased to whatever the limit in the Notes field is? I've never run out of room in Notes.
I really should have thought this all the way through before starting the first post in this series, but I have to add that the warning appears and the entry is truncated only when I have entered the information and then go back to it and try to edit it. The information is accepted when first entered, usually by copying and pasting (e.g., from Find A Grave or Ancestry.com). When I click anywhere in the field on reopening the entry, the warning pops up, and there is no way to cancel the truncation.
