Hey i'm trying to limit the amount of characters a user can enter into certain fields of the CMS. At the moment I'm trying
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new TextField('ProjectTitle1'), 'Content', '', 20); but it doesn't seem to limit anything. Any suggestions? Should I be using $limit = 20 instead?

I think you need to limit in the constructor of the TextField rather then the add to tab function, so you would have

$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new TextField('ProjectTitle1', 'ProjectTitle1', '', 20), 'Content');
