Can't Replace Long Lines of Text in a WordPerfect Template

From HotDocs Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Problem

When selecting a long line of text to replace it with a variable, HotDocs leaves some number of characters off the end of the replaced text. For example, when you attempt to replace the text Heather S. Goldings, Trustee of the Goldings Family Trust dated January 31, 1991 with a variable, HotDocs replaces all of the text but the 1 in 1991

Solution

This is a limitation of WordPerfect. HotDocs uses WordPerfect's search feature to search for and replace text strings in a template with variables, and the maximum number of characters for which WordPerfect can search and replace is 79 characters. (The above example contains 80 characters.)
