Determining maximum characters: Introducing “Lorem6”

By February 4, 2021August 30th, 2022No Comments

In my designs, I often need to determine the maximum amount of characters that a text field in a component may have.

I’ve created a long paragraph of Lorem Ipsum in which I’ve nested numbers that indicate the amount of characters up until that number (it includes the number itself). By copy pasting this text in a design or text field, it is easy to determine how much text should be allowed and how many characters it includes.

See below, feel free to copy paste 🙂
