Hi, when i edit a text field which has a huge content and save it, value from this field disappears and also is impossible to edit other fields from table.

I think this is just a display bug. I can reproduce that here, with a similar bunch of HTML fields. But editing still works after closing the editor. Just the cell in the grid does no longer display its content.

I just did a test to see how long the value must be to trigger the non-displayed cell value. As far as I can see this starts at exactly at 87400 bytes, which is 87359 characters in my utf8 field. I also searched for a place in the sources for that "magic" byte number, but found no occurrences.

It seems a high number of line breaks somehow triggers that. A long one-liner with ~200KB is displayed normally after closing the editor.

It doesn't matter that it disappears (but it's a bug). Worse is that I can't edit any fields in the given table.

It helps to switch to another table and back again.

But I can live with it, I don't meet this problem very often...

That's a part I cannot reproduce here. I can still edit the field, although they are displayed as empty.

You can probably also work around by just hitting F5, without switching to another table.
