Change the style of a Text Field

Hi!

Why I am not able to change the style of a Text Field from Memo to Fixed Length after I have deployed the application? I have added 10 new fields but after I deployed I found out it that all of fields look like MultiLine while I need them in a SingleLine format. Any suggestions, please ?!



Thanks!

    There are several settings such as this that cannot be changed after they are deployed. Primarily, this is because the data is stored differently in the database (different field type or different tables etc). 

    What to do? If this is a brand new process app that does not have any live data, you can undeploy the process app. This will delete all the related tables and the data in those tables. (This is why you should only undeploy if the process app is new. All the data will be deleted.) Once the process app is deleted, you will be able to make changes more freely (until the next deploy).

    If this is not a new process app, you will need to delete the fields in Composer, and make new fields with the right settings.
