Hello All

I've noticed that when I add terms to my Multiterm glossaries 'on the fly' from within SDLX, the descriptive fields (such as definition, context etc) only allow me to use 27 characters, which is not enough to add all the information I want. I've tried copying and pasting into these fields but that doesn't help. Any advice?

I've spent some time looking in the forums for this information, but please do re-direct me if this topic has already been covered.

Thank you in advance!
