Increase character limit for text boxes

I use the text boxes to create outlines of design wireframes for developer reference.
In these situations, it is incredibly common that I run into the character limit for the text boxes and have to break my outline into multiple boxes. The whole process becomes much more frustrating and cumbersome from then on out.

The imposed character limit seems incredibly arbitrary, pointless, and some of the formatting of outlines seems to eat away at the count even quicker.

At the end of the day, when I can easily paste giant image files that will certainly chew up my RAM, why is there such a miniscule text limit? surely it’s not a technical limitation.
At least allow for a “long text” box or something that supports big blocks of text. It is necessary for me to use your software effectively, whether your product team believes that method or not you shouldn’t actively prevent me from doing it.

I use miro to brainstorm ideas before consolidating for presentation-ran into this issue and it disrupted my workflow

Same, I use text boxes to update meeting minutes. Miro seems so capable yet this is a very basic limitation.

Got a similar experience. It makes no sense to put a character limit. If it’s a big of a deal, then please give us a text area with unlimited characters.

I’m thinking to switch from MS OneNote to Miro but text limitation is a breaker.
