note field default static crashes

I'm trying to create a field (note field) with a static value. Is there a maximum # characters to this situation. I have just slightly larger than required for a TEXT field so using Note field, but when I put the text into the default static area and close the window, the program crashes and the change is not kept.
Bug, feature, or am I not finding the warning about amount of text that can be used there?

Thanks.

Hi,

The default static value is limited to 40 characters if memory serves. If you are exceeding this length that could be the problem.

Ok. Couldn't find that in the manual, but maybe it is there.

Solved the problem by using a hidden note field for the first record. Then created another note field that by default grabs the longish note from the previous record hidden field. Now I have a static note in each new record and it doesn't crash.

Thanks.
