restrict length of names in Pointers

Support Ticket

can't reproduce
 
+issue

If there is a limit to how long card names can be, text boxes in Pointers should simply stop accepting text at that limit.

+example

Someone created http://grouppatternlanguage.org/wagn/Setting_Intention -- and got an Application error when trying to view it. Hoptoad said ArgumentError: key too long and the text matched what was in +visual (a Pointer), a very long piece of text. I used card/edit to split/shorten that, and now it works.

 

I started to file a ticket by this name, but when i created a test http://test.dwagn.org/wagn/card_including_insanely_long_Pointer it works, so not really sure what's up.

 
+discussion

I think we've seen this on occasion, but I don't get it.  the "key" doesn't mean card key.  it looks like card content, not card name that's doing this...


this is a "cannot reproduce", right? We've seen this happen, but we don't have a reliable way to make it happen again?
