Our RQM system is on version 4.0.5.  When developers have a longer comment to add to formal review section for a test plan, there is an error message given 'could not save work item. new comment is too long'.  The user can't save the test plan with this longer comment.  I checked the settings for review-task and it uses the default settings for review task.  I also tried from work items - > task review and adding a super long comment and the same error message was given.  Any way to increase this max field's length for formal reviews/approvals?

Hi Corey,

Unfortunately, there is no way to increase the maximum length of a formal review comment since it is already set to the the maximum length (32768 UTF-8 encoded bytes) for a string property.

Note, formal reviews are built on the work item component provided by Rational Team Concert.
