I am currently working on developing apex web application which requires to capture CLOB data and save it to DB.
I am using Rich text editor to capture the content and noticed that only max of 32k characters can be loaded through the page item.
when I try to push data more than 32k char, no data is being sent to the DB.
Please suggest me a way to capture data more than 32k through apex page item.
Oracle DB Version: 12c
Apex version:20.1
Kindly let me know if I am missing any details

APEX natively can't handle more than 32k in a page item.

However, you might want to take a look at this plugin

which is designed to overcome the limitation
