Note: Currently, you can check up to 100,000 characters (including spaces) at a time using the Grammarly Editor. In some cases, users are able to paste documents that exceed 100,000 characters; however, Grammarly may not work as expected. We recommend splitting your document into smaller parts if your document exceeds the limitation and you see this error message.
