Is there a limit to the amount of fields you can populate in a Word template

Hi all,

 

I have an action that populates my Word template based on the values returned by the form when users send it.

 

For some reason, not all the fields I created in my Word template appear, and I was wondering if there was a limit to the amount of fields you can have to populate a Word template.

 

Or maybe am I missing something ? My Word template is on my Sharepoint and I've checked more than once that it has the correct fields and all. I've tried refreshing multiple times, even deleting the action but those specific fields I'm missing never appear.

 

Thanks in advance
