Support for long questions?

I have two quizzes in a course, both produced using Articulate Quizmaker2. In the second the questions are of the type "fill in the missing word". Each question is longer than 256 characters and throws an error at the end of the quiz.

If I reduce the length to under 255 characters, there is no error. So clearly this question is being saved in a text field with a 255 character limit.

Is there a way around this? Do I have to insert an "Explanation" survey question ahead of the shortened question just to make it "fit"? The quiz itself runs fine - it just can't store the question (presumably in the "description" field of the database table)
