I can't find where the site may tell me how long a "long answer" and a "short answer" are in a survey form element. How many characters for each? If I expand the box for the long answer type (by moving the hash-mark grabber in the bottom right corner), does that increase the character limit?

There isn't a way to increase the character limit, but I can tell you that the short answer field is limited to 250 characters. For the general note box, it's 500 characters.

I'm so sorry for missing this! You're right, the general note and long answer box has a 500-character limit.
