It would be great if you could provide us with the functionality to set character limits within our templates designs. This way I could be sure my clients are keeping things consistent and the templates I provide them are working (and looking) as they should be.
Hi check this out, thank you for this request. We'll look into what we can do regarding character limits.
In the interim, you may want to create a template or guide to assist your clients with limiting their copy - previously, I've seen simple, fixed-dimension layouts created in Word or even PowerPoint which provided an indication of how much copy could go into sections of a design. This was more effective than imposing a word count, as this does not take into account line and paragraph breaks.
Let us know how you go with this, or if you have any further suggestions as to how to improve the formatting of templates.
