Field length limit

I have created many content types and list instances.

Many of those have for example the title field, lets say Article and QuestioAndAnswer lists.

I need to put a length limit on the title field but its different for the article list and for the question and answer list.

As the Title is a site column, i have no idea how to do this, even if its possible.

 

Thanks

yes its possible, instead of enter the length on the content type, you can do it on the list instance, different titles pointing to the same site column but each one with different  length limits

i don't think it is possible, you may create a custom column at site level and add it in content type.
while creating such a column you choose diferent max char length allowed.

while you allow content type into list, go to list settings > change column's max char length.
so u'll get different char length for two lists with same column.
