255 Character limits when embedding into MS Word from an external app RRS feed

  • Question

  • Has anyone found out if the 255 character limit when embedding multiline text fields into MS Word for office 365 can be extended? I believe this is currently set to 255 characters.

  • Hi,

    As far as I know, it's by design. The field has a character limit of 255 (including spaces). Please read KB163192 and check if the workaround helps.

    Best Regards,

    Herb
