How to limit character count on a form response?

I’d like for form respondents to not be able to add text beyond a certain number of characters. Is this possible?

If not, how could I at least display the number of characters already inputted so the user can be aware.

Any thoughts or workarounds would be much appreciated :man_bowing:
