Can Character limits be added to text fields, specifically for a form?

I saw the post from 6/18/21 here: https://community.smartsheet.com/discussion/80492/can-character-limits-be-added-to-text-fields

However, the formula

=IF(Text@row >= 50, "Limit Reached. Please use less characters")

is creating an #UNPARSEABLE error.

    Hi Susie,

    Currently it is not possible to have a character limit in the text field of a form. They are limited to 4000 characters including spaces currently, but you cannot make it smaller. This is a good thing to put an enhancement request in, I know I would love to see this and I'm sure others would too.
