I noticed that some of the information I put in the 'Information' box was not being displayed at the front end and disappearing from the backbend after saving.

I checked the database and "description' is only allowed 255 characters. Surely in needs to be way more than that to get some meaningful info there. This is the third licensed one I am using as I like the component a lot. It would be nice if this was sorted out.

I second that. The text gets truncated without warning.

There is a well-known bug that prevents SC from updating cleanly. Haven't had time to sort it out yet, but is definitely on the list.
You can change the field yourself if you have access to phpMyAdmin on your hosting or server.

You can also unzip the com file and change it at admin/sql/install_mysql.utf8.sql file. Not sure if it will update the table on the already installed component.
