    In a document app I composed a lengthy pm to send to another member, I then copied it. I find that I can't paste it in the message body area. Also I have written a lengthy pm only to have what I wrote dissappear. So I'm wondering if there is a word limit for private messages. I'm using Tapatalk.

    From the website I've had some lengthy back and forths (I know, huge surprise ), and never seen a limit. The app may have some built in restrictions. I know it only maintains the previous message, while from the web it maintains the entire string.

    Lengthy pms to you??? That is hard to believe.
    I don't know if Tapatalk has a length limit but I've had several literary masterpieces just go blank page on me. I'll try through the browser Crackberry website.
    Thanks (again).

    Who doesn't enjoy a proclamation of innocence in the form of a manifesto?

    Blame the app all you want. When I have a literary masterpiece and go blank, I know it's oldsheimers.

    Innocence would be the last thing I would be allowed to proclaim. I would spontaneously combust if I did.
    As far as the blank "page" that is caused by the phenomenon known as the "enter-a-room-mindwipe".

    I have a few times also encountered a blank screen after typing text and lost it, but only when I open "edit" in quoted text replies.

    CB app. It doesn't happen often, but for longer quoted text, it seems to have this behaviour when edit is selected in order to read full quote.

    There has to be something else involved that limits the word count of private messages that originate from outside of the website version of the forum. I only use Tapatalk to access the forum, not the CB app. So it's not just the CB app.

    I'll have to move it to CBe soon

    So there is a limit to text in a PM after all:

    Crackberry Private Message word limit? [10k characters]-pm-limit.png

    Back to site related issues and a suggestion. If you exceed the 10k limit, just publish the dang book!
