Additional Information:



Character Truncation in the Matter Number settings is when a string of words is limited to display only a certain amount of characters.

For example, if Matter Description was selected in the scheme then an option to select Character Truncation would appear. If you selected a number value this would limit the number of characters in the Matter Description that would be displayed in the Matter Number.
