Length of Property Metadata Permitted Values list

Hi,

Has anyone found a maximum length for the permitted values list. We have a requirement for the Author to select a category for the document from a very long list of pre-defined options.

They specifically want to use a property rather than another taxonomy.

Cheers,

-Richard

    From OSS: There is no limit, but adding 1000s of terms is going to make it difficult for users to use.

    From my reading of drop down lists, mistakes or purposeful misrepresentations start to happen when the list is longer than 15. So, I agree with Richard that you should be careful of the list length. If you can break it apart, then do so.
