Limit Number of Characters in Text Entry Box

I am using Storyline 2, and I have entered three different text boxes on a slide for users to enter data.  I would like to limit the boxes to a certain number of characters.  Right now learners can keep typing in a field and data that they enter becomes hidden.  I can't find any way to address this problem.

Thanks for your help.  I will make sure to submit the request.  I did find a work around that suits my purpose. With this module, there are specific responses that should be entered into the text entry fields and a check button that is set up to show a correct response or incorrect response depending on what is entered.  I set the slides up to clear any text entry fields on a slide when an incorrect response was entered.  That helped to alleviate the problem.  This way a learner doesn't by chance have a hidden character that is throwing everything off.
