With creating a new text card from scratch, is there a character limit? Similarly with importing text content and if there is a limit, will Sway automatically split the content into multiple cards or will it just truncate the text? Thanks!

Hi Christine - there is no character limit within a text card as such.  There is a limit on the total number of paragraphs within a sway; I'm not sure of the number, but it's something like 1000, or higher for Office 365 users.  Still, you could put all of those 1000 paragraphs within the same text card if you wanted.

 

If I remember correctly, if you go over the limit, Sway won't show the additional paragraphs in the output - but it will show a warning if you get to that point.

Hi christine

 

There is no character limit in text card but if the text is typed in a paragraph in a text card then you can only type 200 paragraph in sway online but in office 365 you can type 1000 paragraph.

 

And if you import huge amount of text in a text card it will not split into multiple cards but will show you warning see the image mentioned belowa.png
