Is there a character limit placed on "text" type questions?

I've made several surveys using Survey123 Connect and when it comes to filling out the surveys there seems to be a limit on the number of characters allowed (255) for the "text" type questions.  Is there a way to bypass this or increase the limit?  Is it a field that is defaulting on the XLS form spreadsheet or can I add it as a field to increase the limit?  We are using this for damage assessment purposes and the descriptions entered are often longer than 255 characters.
