Error you cannot input more than 255 characters MultiChoice Field

IF you have a field with values with more than 255 characters to a choice field and you add them all to your document, the following message is shown:

"you cannot input more than 255 characters"

Solution: Create a List with all the options of this field and modify the field on the Document Library to type Lookup. Select the checkbox "Allow unlimited length in document libraries"

Now you can have more than 255 characters in choice field.

This also works with the easylinkdocs Solution on codeplex http://easylinkdocs.codeplex.com/

Note: This only happen in document library. Not in custom lists.
