Server Limit text length: 2147483647

An observation I thought I’d better drop here, because it might or might no be related to the error messages emitted by the LibO extension discussed in other threads.




LT office integration log from Thu Mar 12 18:24:10 CET 2020
Server Limit text length: 2147483647
Server Limit text length: 2147483647

even after opening a one sentence document. (I couldn’t attache one here.)


  • Ubuntu 19.10
  • LibreOffice 6.3.5
  • LT extension v4.9 snapshot 2020-03-11
  • LT server v4.9 snapshot 2020-03-09
  • OpenJDK 11.0.6

Hmm, now I wonder if that’s not an error, but the effective server text length limit?

But then, text length limit is a property of the server, not the extension. I didn’t see a way to query the limit in the HTTP API documentation at!/default/post_check . And I did see other chunks of error messages in the log file. I wonder what said line actually refer to?

2147483647 is just the default limit, it basically means “no limit” (assuming you don’t send > 1 GB of text).

But who’s default limit is it? That of the extension or that of the server, which the extension retrieved somehow? Do any of the LT clients adapt to a given server limit, trying to send text chunks smaller than the limit?
