QB Issue Resolution:
It will have a hard limit on the number of characters allowed. I think it is 11 but haven’t checked. However you may be referring to the size of it. The Invoice Templates layouts effect the print out but not the onscreen entry field size (they do effect whether a particular field shows up or not in data entry).
