1. Create a temporary scratch layer
2. Create a text field with unlimited length
3. Insert this text:
string layer path
This is a slightly longer text to check if the string processing by "Processing" works properly. Unfortunately, there are currently problems with the processing of numeric fields - hopefully not even with strings with more than 255 characters. Let's see what happens when we exceed magic limits imposed by the proprietary DBF format in the past.
4. Check_ Layer Properties > Source Fields_: The length of the field is fixed to 255, while the text is much longer.
