LCD Widget Length Limit Calculation Error

Hi Developers!

The boxes here has a 16 character limit… As users are aware of what’s displayed in it, is this limit necessary?
Its affecting functionality and taking the /pin0/ & /pin1/ in to the total length calculation. Even though there is space for characters, its limiting the content of what I intend to be displayed there…

With the LCD Widget in Simple Mode, we get to enter data for 2 lines…
We could add our own text and get the widget to display data from a virtual pin with “/pin0/” & “/pin1/”

Each of these boxes has a 16 character limit, technically…
In my case, I’m trying to make the widget display this data:
Humidity: 75%

For this I have to type:
Humidity: /pin1/%

But, Blynk App lets me type only “Humidity: /pin1/”
Refer to the attached pic. Here, I’ve decided to use…
“Humidit: /pin1/%”

Basically, what Blynk needs to do here is, it shouldn’t be calculating the length with the /pin1/ character count of “6”…
