Why do I get a 'too long' error message in Canvas when I try to save the page with my daily agenda?

Hi @MariaFulton -

In the past, when I've stumbled upon threads mentioning the "Too Long" error, it's because of the inclusion of images. I've tested this with over 48,000 words on a page (a lot of content!), but other Community Members say that the error goes away after removing images, saving, and then adding them back to the page. I wonder if this would work for you!

 

Here are some additional threads for context:
