"Your message is too long. Please shorten it before sending"
Who are you to decide how long my messages should be? If I want to post a long stack trace, I should be able to do it.
Michael Freidgeim commented
Can you at least specify the limit in the message?
Neil Raphael Veigas commented · August 5, 2020 5:17 PM · The maximum message size is a healthy 25 KB.
Is it true?
When I saved my message as docs attachment, it was shown as 21K.

For F*CK sake, copy slack fully.. If the message is too long, automatically convert it to a snippet and send it over! Don't tell me there is no need to send long messages; we send code, stack trace, data, SQL queries, etc., that are longer than your limit! It is just dumb. Just fix it!
It show long time I am not able to type new message to him Please help me out
I'm not sure I agree with an unlimited length, but the app shouldn't hang forever. Maybe a button on the warning message to delete the entire message. Ctrl + A > Delete does NOT work (or is taking many minutes? and I'm not patient enough). Have to sign out and sign back in or delete line by line.
Had the whole application hang because I pasted the wrong table.. took me ten minutes and much swearing to find this thread to find how to sort it out.
It sits there telling me my message is too long, but hangs so that i cant even delete it. Talk about failure to lift off. This is the software my client has me using, am suggesting that they really want to consider alternatives.
This is also an issue when you have MS Bot Framework chatbot enabled through MS Teams. We are using Adaptive Cards to enrich the user experience and as soon as the card is even slightly complex, we are seeing following error messages when trying to send it to end users:
413 - RequestEntityTooLarge - Message size too large.
More details about this can be found in following Github issue:
The 28KB per message is way too small. Please increase this limit.

My solution to when the app would hang was to right-click on the teams icon in the task bar and choose to sign out and sign back in. The too long message was then deleted.
My workaround was sending the text as an email to the channel email address.
We are seeing this too and the data we are trying to send is not that large. Is there an ETA on a fix?
My bigger problem is that the text editor causes the entire application to hang when you accidentally paste in a long message. Any deleting it isn't easy, because the app becomes unresponsive if you touch the text.
To work around this I've found the following method: close and restart Teams, open the rich text editor on the offending draft text, click trash can icon to deletes the entire draft at once.

I have error as you, I try as image can fix it.
You know how to scare devs away from the MS dev env? Have them use stuff like Teams. Talk about bad advertising.
How can the usability of this (¤/&#&# fest be SO bad.
I cant even delete the content now cause Teams just hangs.
2020 and MS still cant figure out how to send ASCII over the wire ... WTAF.
We try to use Teams for a daily update across a broad technology group. The updates on different issues and efforts can get pretty lengthy. Teams is supposed to be an industry-wide standard, but how can it be used when messages are so limited. Now I have to break up into multiple posts. I am very disappointed in this limitation and hope it is fixed soon..
Epic failure on usability! UNBELIVEABLE that we have such an issue in 2020.
SHAME ON MICROSOFT and SHAME ON THE ENGINEERS WHO IMPLEMENTED THIS.
How do fix it from hanging??
There is a workaround for this:
- Click on Format (The A with a brush icon)
- More options (three dots icon at the end of the Format top bar)
- Code snippet
- Paste your very long text here

It's so crazy that this issue is still not fixed. My devs hate Teams for this specific reason. Increase message capacity or remove the size limitations please!

You guys do realise that your device has limited storage space, right? The maximum message size is a healthy 25 KB. Bear with it!
