I think "bug" is not-to-be-expected behavior, i.e., is inconsistent with how the program is *supposed to* or intended to work. In this sense, if Rick is right, then the program is working "properly," so not a bug. Also (and I'm not trying to be petty), the all caps in the subject line (for "bug") probably isn't needed--the Accordance staff pays good attention to the forums, and just placing a topic in "Bug Swatters" (as you have) is enough.
However, it does seem we are long past (or should be long past) the days of character limits, so I think this is a worthy feature request that Accordance do away with character limits, both here and in workspace names, etc. I think even MS Word doesn't have the character limits it once did.
