Character limit on ADC's

Our facility has been able to update the Omnicell with the 5 letter character limit recommended by ISMP. We have sinced changed it to 4 letters due to some entries and the inability to change them. We also implemented this change on the anesthesia work stations? Has anyone else? What has been the response from anesthesia?
Thank you,
