2506888 - Field Description not Shown Completely


Description of the custom field is not shown completely in the UI

Reproducing the Issue

  • Create a custom field.
  • Give a longer text for the description of the field.
  • In UI you see that the description is not shown completely.


  • As per the UI Guidelines the labels will not wrap but should be trimmed if the space is not enough for the label to be displayed completely.
  • So the number of characters for the description should be reduced accordingly to show completely.
  • There is no setting in UI designer which could change this.


This is an expected system behavior.
