Bug report #13370
Maximum string length 255

When saving attributes as "string", the maximum number of allowed characters is 255. Is it possible to implement this number? In the file I need to use, a complex geometry is described, so the characters used are not enough.

Only one more thing...I saved the shapefile that I have in the spatialite format you said. Is it also possible to modify the table of the attributes from string to another format with more characters? Because I need to use the datas saved in Q-GIS that a company gave me, and in the format string there are coordinates which are not complete, also if the drawing of the lines in Q-GIS is complete. Thank you in advance.

If you are in Spatialite, you will not have the 255 charector limit, but on the other hand you can't delete a column!
This is more of a question to the mailing list and not a bug with QGIS. Please feel free to pose the question to the list or more reading about Spatialite:
