    Whenever I try to insert a description for my document, I get the following error:

    Value for property ShortText is too long. Maximun length is 250

    It works for short descriptions, but some of my descriptions are long.  Can I adjust this?

    Hi medicalwebgeek,

    Find the following code in the web.config file and change the valueType value from ShortText to LongText for Libraries.Description:
    <cmsEngine defaultProvider="Generic_Content"
      ... 
      <metaFields> 
        ... 
        <add key="Libraries.Description" valueType="LongText" visible="True" searchable="True" sortable="True" defaultValue=""/> 
        ... 

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Kind regards,

    I changed it to:
    <add key="Libraries.Description" valueType="LongText" visible="True" searchable="True" sortable="True" defaultValue=""/>

    and I am still getting the same error.

    Disregard - this only occured when I was trying to edit items that I have already put in my library.  I deleted and re-added these items without any problems.
