>From the User Guide:

Maximum length of a line in a field:
65,536 characters storage
No more than 32,786 pixels wide for display

If you put lines longer above limits then LC will hang/crash

The amount of lines a field can hold is a lot higher provided the individual lines are not too long.

Kind regards
