I was wondering if anyone knows how much information can be stored in each notes sections (individual facts notes, person notes, etc.)  I've searched but didn't find an answer.  I am using RM6, in case it's different depending on the version you are using.

 

Thanks,

Kim

No known practical limit in the database itself but maybe a lower one in the Note Editor. For example, NotePad is limited by available RAM or by some coded limit above which a larger file is opened with WordPad. I expect the Note Editor is similarly limited.

 

That said, I would not want to work with a large amount of text in the Note Editor. Better in Word.

I've seen Notes that were enough to fill a few typed pages at 12-point. That's more than I'd want to attach to a single fact/event, so I'm good with that amount.
