I'm not sure what you mean by "characters in a renderer"?  Do you mean the characters in the long-text fields?  Which are effectively unliimited?

I have a custom field set to text renderer.  I can only type in 255 characters in to the resulting field.  Possibly the renderer isn't what sets the number of characters I can type there.  However I want to be able to type in more characters.  Is there a way to change that?

Sounds like you've created a "short text" field. You can't extend those. You need to swap to using "free text" fields instead, they're unlimited.

How do I swap this out?

Add a new field of type "free text" and delete the old short-text field.
