Important Information

  • The character limit per text box is 60,000 characters (roughly 10,000 words) including spaces. If you run over the limit, you can simply add another text box.
  • When pasting text from an external source, we recommend you follow the instructions here.
  • If you are copying and pasting chunks of text and you go over the limit, you may find that a whole chunk gets removed. To resolve this, you just need to paste this chunk of text into a new text box.
