I am asked to change the length of the attribute DESCRIPTION_LONGDESCRIPTION in Item application to 400. 
Right now it is set at 32000 and is in ready only.
I didn't see anything that could help me in the application designer...

Anyone knows if this is possible at all?

Thank you :-)

Longdescription is managed in a separate table for all applications and is an internal object where you can't make change. In DB it is CLOB/BLOB type which doesn't have size associated with it.

If you want to decrease the size of the Long description box for users then You can set a height and width (in pixels) on the longdescription control in the longdesc_dialog in the library system XML which will be applied on all the applications.
