Character Count in Studies Alert Formula?

Support Request:

Hello, I am writing a formula for the alert conditions and at certain character counts it seems to be truncating my formula which makes me think that there is a certain amount of characters that can be applied at a time in studies alert conditions. I've tried this in the alert condition on the main chart and that seems to work fine however that's one instance or formula. My formulas are getting shortened when i click apply on a study alert condition.
Is there a character count?
I am trying to build a bit more of a robust set of conditions. Is there a way that I can reference other formula's I've written for alert conditions to chain them together due to a possible character count?
Or is there a way I can apply more characters in alert conditions in studies?
Thanks for your time in advance!

The limit for an alert formula in the Study Settings window or the Chart Settings window is 384 characters. This will be improved upon later but not for a while.

For longer formulas you will need to use the Spreadsheet System/Alert study instead:

@Sierra Chart Engineering: It would be very helpful for me too, if more characters in alert conditions were possible. Do you know approximately when you will improve it? Knowing that would be helpful for my further work.

Not sure when this would change because it is part of a very involved task to change the data storage. You really just need to use the Spreadsheet study to overcome the limit. We cannot even give any approximation on this at all. Other than to say we hope it would be done sometime in 9 to 24 months.
