Diana, I have found out this for the length of variable contents: >From FM 8.0: up to 2023 Windows Codepage characters or up to 2022 UTF-8 characters. Concerning the maximum number of variable definitions you got an answer already (seems to be limited by RAM only). There may, however be a limit depending on other objects: The internal context table is a memory construct that holds many types of FrameMaker document objects. The following table illustrates the different entries and their requirements. element: 2 entries; variable: 2 entries; cross-reference: 2 entries; marker (any type): 1 entry; table: 1 entry; anchored frame: 1 entry; hidden conditional text: 1 entry per block. In FrameMaker 5.5, maximum number of entries is 2^24 (16 777 216).
