Hi

I have with the help of this forum, integrated a html editor which can paste long text, including attachments etc. from word to limesurvey.

We are using postgresql.

Are there any known limitations or caveats? With word-html markup cruft, a few embedded images etc, there can quickly be a lot of data in a single cell. But postgres can handle cells up to 1 gb.

Is it only the database that poses limits?

Sincerely

For the answer.

E.g. the survey asks: "Please provide your business plan."

Then the respondent can paste ind text from ms-word. A tiny table, three bullets, two headings and a single paragraph + a black and white image base64 encoded, is 40.000 characters.

We provide an option to attach a file. But my boss don't want to make attachments mandatory. So I am wondering how much of a problem this can be.

Yes -questiontype is Huge free text.

We need to add specific limitation for some part too : question text and answer (short|long) text and other (and comment).


See www.limesurvey.org/forum/can-i-do-this-w...ic-languages?start=0

If you use utf8 with only 4 bits character it do 2^14 : 16 384

for mysql

Think it same for answer of free text question.
