Absolutely needs to be addressed. Just a simple path of OneDrive/Documents/Active Projects is 25+ characters. Then add "active Project A"/Presentations/name of presentations and you easily get to another 40+ characters. Having a relatively small limit seems short sighted. Please fix this limitation

I agree. With business as complex as it is, with many having multiple areas of effort, having a relatively small character limit of 260 is unhelpful. The error message that displays is equally unhelpful and makes no mention of the limit thus forcing me to waste time to see if I had some character within the path that is not permitted - even more frustrating. Many years ago the limit for file names was 8 characters - one reason why I preferred Macs. Don't make me go back.
