I made a template that cuts off the last parts of the "details".  The template shows full sentences, but in the actual details on the page, it shows as "...", until I manually paste the rest in again, then save, again.

*Ticket sent.

This is happening again.  All events that were posted via a template are cut off.

Example:

And you say when you manually paste the details in, it works? If so, does it preserve all of the extra color switching and everything?

The color changes save, but the actual texts cuts its short both for templates and cut/paste.

So you would or wouldn't be able to do what I did with the sample event you linked?

Tell you what... I'll just increase the max size of that field and we'll see if that does it. Will go live with the weekly update.

I am not sure what you are asking, but the last time this happened, you sent me an email with this repsonse:

Alright, I think the details are being truncated by an old limitation in the code that doesn't reflect the actual limitation of the DB, so I've raised it and it'll go live with Fridays update.

Not sure if that information was helpful or not, but hopefully it works out in the end.
