Is there a way to restrict character count, or note characters over X number, in a cell? (Ideally, like Twitter where you can see how many over and decide whether to proceed) — or is there an alternate to excel that does so/is meant for word processing (spell/gram check)? Context: client wants a template for copy input/planning that mirrors a defined UI of an internal L&D platform.
