Command Block Character Limit Bug

      I use Minecraft 1.8.8 with a laptop that is updated to Windows 10. Now I know that the character limit in a command block is supposedly 32,767 characters, but I have been working on a one command creation that does not surpass the limit. It has 32,759 characters, which is really close to the limit yet isn't it. I have tried using a third-party editor to put a command within the command block's NBT data. When I ran the command it worked, but I still don't understand why it doesn't allow me to manually type the command and then submit the command into the command block. If any more information is needed just ask.
