Before submitting please take into consideration:

  • Our system only supports the browsers Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox

  • The limit of 2,000 characters refers to manually typed text and it includes spaces.

  • If you copy-paste the text, hidden formatting might still be included and you will be informed that your text exceeds the limit of 2,000 characters. We recommend copy-pasting your text into Notepad beforehand or saving it as text only to eliminate the hidden formatting.
