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.

    If webflow staff doesn't want to upgrade the limitation by default, they should put a "secret" option to force the limitation for that users that are super annoyed can break the limitation before they change to another soft that doesn't limit creation.

    So frustrating. Can somebody from webflow can give any good reason why it's limited? I just want to go back to another CMS because of this stupid limitation. that's a nightmare to fix this with external links for all the scripts. Please change the number to 100,000 that doesn't change anything for webflow owner, just super annoying for users. If webflow was the perfect no code soft, it would be ok to have 10 000 character, but we are still very far from perfection and still need a lot of code to have something in the top of the game.

    I want to simply embed transcripts onto my site — and the text embedded is well over 20,000 characters. The process of reformatting manually takes 45 minutes per article.

    Please change the number to 100,000.

    How is this still a problem?

    Please at least show us a non-complicated workaround as a "non-coder".

    Very, very frustrating.

    I would add as a stepping stone, at least allowing for the SVG element. Seems a lot of the complaints here and on the forums are like mine, hitting the limit easily on SVGs. Simpler would be removing the cap or at least raising it, but I'll take the alternative too!

    I need to be able to add Form Assembly forms to my websites and most of them require more than 10,000 characters of code. please increase character limit.

    We have an app designed to embed payment buttons. Works great on every other website builder under the sun but due to the 10,000 limit, we cannot recommend Webflow. I guess we have to send people to Wordpress or Squarespace. Sigh.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    @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?

    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.
