is the help text on the form n list module limited to about 420 characters?

if so, can this be extended please?

I would like to add more info in this box, but it is getting cropped off.

I can extend the box size by using a div height in the help text area, but the help text still gets cropped off at around 420 characters.

further to the above...whenever, the help icon is used on a column, it creates a huge blank to the left of the column (which isn't even used by help pop-out box).
this makes the Form And List module look a bit ghastly.

is it possible to edit the position of the icon in css? - if so, anybody know what the css name is for it please?

I've just checked the data type of the help text field and its nvarchar(max),
so not sure why that whatever I use in the help text box - gets cropped to 512 characters?

I would have thought that nvarchar(max) would give me more than 512 characters? unless there is something else restricting this?

Mark,
even if the database is able to keep longer texts, both the UI and the API (ASP.Net code) need to support the size as well.

Thanks Sebastian,

forgive me, but where or how could I check for such constraints please for the UI / ASP.NET ?
