First red box appears when less than 4K text appears. This is misleading as the text is less than 4K but the system limits the entry with the message. Then if the text is reentered the Save occurs but then the page errors. If using Text box it still create the error but user gets stuck in an endless loop and can't get out.

Page shows ORA-01461:can bind a LONG value only for insert into a LONG column
