Composer error There is an error in XML document

Hi,

When I try to make a content change to a composer function, I get an exception that the input string was not in a correct format.  I can't figure out what is wrong from the log files as it seems its something in composer that is failing? 

 

thanks

Danie

There seems to be a limitation of how many composer elements you can use on a page.  The page where this error is occuring, is a on page where there the client dropped multiple composer elements into other composer elements.

Is there a link on EPiServer on Composer limitations?

Thanks
