Is there a way to avoid paste limit in Send an Email (HTML)

I have an email being sent when an Online Excel document is updated. I have updated the design of this email to the content is pretty expansive. At some point, it won't let me paste in the email Body field but it will still allow me to type further. Is there someway to avoid this or do I have to type this out manually (thousands of characters)?

Re: Is there a way to avoid paste limit in Send an Email (HTML)

Hey @AlanPs1,

 

Sorry for wasting you time, I found the solution. I was updating a previous email and was using @variables from an excel file. I accidentally left off the end of one of the variables I copied and pasted from the old email. This is where Flow was not allowing me to paste anymore. Once fixed, it pasted totally fine.

 

Let me know if this makes sense or if you want more clarification.

 

Thanks for the help,

Tyson

Re: Is there a way to avoid paste limit in Send an Email (HTML)

Hi @TysonHuotari

In my Flows, I have HTML email output which is 2500 - 3000 characters and copy and paste using the common methods no problem when required.

ctrl + c -> ctrl +v

right-click copy -> right-click paste

 

I can cut and paste with below methods

ctrl + x & ctrl +v

right-click cut -> right-click paste

 

I have also now just cut and paste over 150,000 characters of text into a "send an email v2" and it saves, sends, copys and pastes, cuts and pastes etc.

 

Can you possibly screen grab any errors you get and post  them?

What browers have you tried, chrome, IE, Edge, Firefox, Safari?

If you create a brand new flow with a simple trigger action does the same issues occur?

Have you tired to go to Lorem Ipsum and copy 100 paragraphs. does this paste in with no other expresions in the body of the email?

 

Please try this and post back so we can try and identify if you are identifying a Flow Issue or a local one.

Alan

Hey @AlanPs1,

 

Thank you for the quick response! I will answer your questions as follows:

  • There is no error thrown, it simply will not paste
  • I have tried in Chrome, Firefox, and Edge
  • The same issue occurs with a new Flow. I want to ponit out I am not using a V2 becuase this email is HTML (not simple text). I can paste it into a V2 but that won't fit my situation becuase I need it treated as HTML.
  • I tried pasting in the Lorem Ipsum and it worked without any issues. It seems to only allow me to input a certain part of my HTML before I am cut off.

 

Is there anything else I can try?

Hi Tyson.

That makes sense and glad I helped you along with the troubleshooting.

It didn't sound like a Flow issue hence why I posted my rational of pasting the 150,000 characters.

 

Glad you now have it working now.
