    textAreaController error - Umbraco 7.6.5


    I have a macro, which uses a plain old text area as a parameter. Since upgrading I've noticed the following error:-

    Cannot read property 'maxChars' of null

    When I debug the JS it chokes on this line of code in the umbraco.controllers.js (textAreaController) file.

    if($scope.model.config.maxChars) {

    When I step through it I can see the config is null.

    As this is a standard Umbraco Controller file, I'm loathed to alter it.

    Is this a bug?
