At the moment I can only enter 255 characters but can continue typing until I go to save the invoice. Instead of finding out I have too many characters when saving, it would be helpful if it is not possible to type anything further after the 255 characters, or if when exceeding the characters it automatically rolls over to a new line,  thanks.

Sorry, @KayVeron.  I understand now. Yes, when entering a time billing invoice, the notes field will allow you to enter more than 255 characters, but won't save with 255 characters. This could certainly be handled better by the software. Anyone who would like to see this corrected, please cast your vote here.

Thank you for your suggestion @KayVeron. There isn't a notes field as such on invoices in AccountRight. Are you referring to the notes field o the customer card, or the description or memo field on an invoice? Are you referring to the notes field in MYOB Essentials sales invoices?

Clarification needed.  Sorry I was referring to the sales invoices in AccountRight Premier latest upgrades.

Thank you for the clarification @KayVeron. In AccountRight Premier's latest upgrade, there isn't a notes field on sales invoices. Do you mean the description field?

This annomaly occurs in many fields - instead of limiting you to a certain no of characters, MYOB keeps letting you type and then you have to guess how much of that type you need to delete before allowing you to move to the next field. eg just off the top of my head -  invoice no, purhcase no. and account name in payment details screen - but there are others. Its very annoying and time consuming that the software limits you in the first place (especially in description and notes fields), but since there are limits, doesnt stop you from typing once this limit is reached.
