I'm using the filedataobjectmanager to upload PDF files, add a title (text field), description (textarea field), and keywords (textarea field). For the keywords portion, I was asked if there is a limit to the number of keywords that can be added, since some of the PDFs may be keyworded with up to almost 2,000 characters. I said there isn't a limit, but I need to see if anyone can confirm that.

I am pretty sure the max size you can use in a Text database field is about 4MB of Text. You can do the translation into how many characters 4mb is but its quite a few .
If it actually uses a Varchar field in the DB to store it then it has a 255 char limit.
