OK, we seem to be heading towards the conclusion that the 7413 limit is more specific to Word documents for some reason.
I'm not sure you've hit the right reason, though. I can vouch for the fact that the difference is 87 characters, every single time- that is, my effective limit has never varied from 7413 for some years now.

Not really, as I filled the text box with numbers and line breaks every 1000 characters, copied the text to word and got a character count of 7493. I had 7 line breaks.
Why do think the "available characters" function fell by the wayside?
Nice of you to send this reply.
I'm working a piece that will be presented over many threads (one chapter at a time). The limitation is honing my editing and revision skills like no other project I've done.
