the error suggests you are exceeding the allowed length (32768 bytes) by around 75 bytes.. So, you could try saving one field after another, this will tell you which field was exceeding the limit.. then reduce the content in that field accordingly... hope it helps

one of your string attributes has a text larger than the allowed length.. review your large string attributes to reduce the content and you should be able to save..
