Note Size Limit?

Postby ldtod » Thu Sep 20, 2018 12:16 pm

is there a limit to the amount of information that can be copied and pasted into a note? I ask this because when I tried to paste a talk into a note linked to a particular scripture it would show up initially with issue, but in the end wouldn't sync or show as visible once I shutdown the application and restarted it. By the way I did give the application plenty of time to accomplish the task.

The limit is 20,000 characters, including any special characters used behind the scenes to indicate rich text (if you use bold/italics/etc.), and also including whitespace characters like new lines. I don't know how or whether Gospel Library for Windows enforces the limit (the different platforms enforce the limit in different ways – not letting the user type more, or truncating the text when saving, or saving locally but not syncing correctly). But the sync service that backs up and syncs your notes between devices won't sync more than 20,000 characters in a single note.

Not sure what the current limit is, but with the latest update it will barely let you put a note of over 200 characters or so before saying it is too big??? How can we put quotes etc in there if it won’t allow us to do so? Latest update changed everything here.

In February (2020) the limit changed from 20,000 to 500,000 characters, so if you're only able to type 200 characters, something else is going on.

Are you copy/pasting content from another source, or typing it in? If you're copy/pasting it, does it display the formatting (bold, italics, fonts, colors, etc.) from the source, or did it paste as plain text?
