Increase the 259 path length limit when saving files to SharePoint online
A word document (and other office apps) opened from a SharePoint library can not be saved if the URL exceeds 259 characters. It does not make sense to impose the same limit as saving files to a hard drive when saving files to a URL as URL's are not file paths on physical storage / hard drives.
Please fix this.

Can this please get fixed? We work with multiple organizations that run into this issue. The organizations require long file paths because of the granularity of the departments.
From our testing this issue just affects Word locally but does not affect PowerPoint and Excel which seems very odd.
