Error message when user exceeds Admin app text field length

Description

If the user puts too much text into a text field in the Admin app, the app allows them to copy the text to the page, but it won't let them save it. BUT, instead of giving the user an error message, it just fails to save and reverts back to the previous version of the webpage/value of the field. So if the user just typed in the 'perfect paragraph,' when it fails to save it, it also vanishes and the user loses his/her work.

Could it be programmed so that it keeps the too-lengthy text in the browser and returns an error message to the user that the text is too long and cannot be saved?

There is script that we can attach to those text input fields to let the user know how many characters they have left.

Or, once they reach the character limit, have a popup...

At the very least, it should not let the user leave the page until they've fixed the text field to contain the correct number of characters or fewer.
