Increase Character Count for HTML Embed to 100,000 or Unlimited

I love Webflow but i ran into an issue today. I created a really awesome SVG animation for Webflow, but the HTML Embed will not let me add it because there is a character limit of 10,000. 

This file is not very complex, but it over 50,000 characters.


Please Webflow increase your limit to above 100,000 character or make it unlimited. This would be an easy fix and it would allow us to add more custom code to our sites.

    The fact that they don't already do this is beyond idiotic. Either let us be able full HTML edit on the code we are making or let us embed larger amounts of handwritten code. 10000 characters is barely anything.

    @waldo Knows how I feel about this. I am also building ecommerce forms using the HTML embed. Really dumb to have such a small limit of 10000, should be easy fix?

    Yeah, I have several SVG text diagrams in my Wordpress blog and can't move over to Webflow until they increase this character limit.

    This is just an example of how a good idea gets ruined by the company. How can this be an issue for a html generating webapp? I still don't get it.

    I keep running into this restriction just adding some javascript code, please guys... 10K seems totally arbitrary. Just make it unlimited.

    I had that problem and here is how I solved it!

    You can add the <style> tag into the svg file! Then all you need is to upload it to the assets.

    Note: Add an html embed code and wrap it with <object href="link-to-your-svg"> without that it will not play the animation every time you reload the browser.
