Setting the field length in the Contact Layout

How do I set the field length for a new field in the contact layout?

 

I am using Act 16, on Windows 7, my database is private

Re: Setting the field length in the Contact Layout

The risual field length or the actual field length in number of characters?

Re: Setting the field length in the Contact Layout

I don't know what the risual field length is.  I want to be able to set the maximum number characters that I type into a field, which should be the same as the number of characters I actuall see.

 

Thanks!

Re: Setting the field length in the Contact Layout

The number of characters allowed in a field is set in Tools | Define Field. The field size in the layout is a space defined in pixels and has no direct relationship to the number of characters allowed in the field.
