Hello Jaroslaw,
I was so happy to hear your good news. I opened my Kexi table, went into design view, and increased the maximum number of allowed characters for each of my fields of type "text", from 200 to 1000. Went again clicked on the tab to switch back to data view, I got the below message. On the basis of the below, I had to discard the changes I had made, by clicking on "Discard design". You wrote below that this problem was fixed a long time ago. Are you sure about that? Or if there is another way to do this aside from what I did, please let me know.

I am using Kexi Version 3.1.0. In earlier versions it was the case that if one were to go into design view and change the settings, such as the setting for the number of characters allowed in each cell, the program would delete all the data in the table. Is that still the case?

Hello Swarup
Thanks for the question. For quite long time already (3.0?) KEXI does not require removal or recreation of the table if modified property is of such non-fundamental kind. So no worries here.
I would very much like to increase the number of characters allowed in each cell, or remove the limit altogether. But cannot afford to lose my data.

Also no worries here. If removal or recreation of the table is required KEXI _always_ tells you that and asks for confirmation prior to the change. You then have the opportunity to abandon changes made to the project recently.

PS: Sorry, I've been away from keyboard for several days.
