I have a dropdwonfield with a choice of 10 entries. Is there a way to restrict the field to only allow 4 entries?

Hi and sorry for late reply,
unfortunately this is not possible, I will take it as feature request. Now you can do this by adding following Javascript code to your template:
if(jQuery('#jform_ALIASOFTHEFIELD').length) jQuery('#jform_ALIASOFTHEFIELD').chosen({ max_selected_options: 1 });
Replace ALIASOFTHEFIELD with the alias of your select field

Thank you for helping me.

I added the following code via Module to the Page:

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(document).ready(function() {
if (jQuery('#jform_allgemein').length) jQuery('#jform_allgemein').chosen({
max_selected_options: 4

But it doesn't work ...
