    I use World Edit on build, but the text length limitation prohibits long commands and that's quite bothering me. I'm using the //g command to make shapes, but functions can be really long and I can't make them due to text limit.

    For instance:
    As I'm studying équations of rotated shapes, I have to convert every coordonate by a quite long function. for instance, to make a torus rotated 1 radian in the X axis, and 1 radian in the Y axis, the command should be (according to my calculations):
    //g stone (0.75-sqrt((cos(1)*x+sin(1)*cos(1)*z-sin(1)*x)^2+(cos(1)*y-sin(1)*cos(1)*z-sin(1)*x)^2))^2+(cos(1)*z+sin(1)*y)^2 < 0.25^2
    That's just an example, this isn't the regular use of World Edit but the text limit is still restricting a lot of normal uses of World Edit (when you don't know the ID of a block and have to write the full name for instance, like "stained_hardened_clay:yellow")

    Is text limitation decided by the server? If yes, will it be possible to disable text limit for World Edit commands, or commands in general.

    If there was a way to lengthen it for worldedit commands without changing the length of text people can spam in chat, maybe.

    I think command blocks allow the longer text, but at the moment it's reserved for the higher ranks opped on servers.

    I think //g might be one of the few commands that regular players can access that the text limits really affect... But according to feedback I got, it's rare to see people use it. I think what you're doing is cool, though. Hmm. I'll ask around.

    About not knowing block ids, you could always print out a sheet with blocks and their ids (thats what I do) or go to http://minecraft-ids.grahamedgecombe.com/. I has the block id for every block amd item in minecraft and you can search blocks in the site's search bar.

    You can just do f3+h to toggle block IDs or use //info tool for more specific IDs.

    This would actually be really useful for some groups of people. I won't find my hands on it though because maths.
    That's one awesome outcome of the command though.
