I have a list that I am customizing using Infopath 2010. Do you have any idea how to overcome the 255 char limitation for a text box? I understand that this is possible for document libraries. When you create a new column of type Multiple Lines of Text, you get the option to select the ‘Allow unlimited length in document libraries’ check box. However this is not possible for lists.
Is there a solution other than using a rich text box which is not supported by all web browsers. Multiple text boxes are not not an option too.
Please help! Thank you in advance,

Thank you Dimitry. I already read that thread. I can't use multiple test boxes and the sub strings.
I found a solution for my problem:I created the field from list settings. I selected a multiline text with plain text as field choice. Then I opened my sharepoint list using Infopath and added the field to my form. The 255 character text limit is gone.
