The current Guide which I am working on has too much content for the Notes text box.  To reduce the text in the Notes text box, can I push some of the information to the main text box, or remove some information?

I wonder if you need to capitalize Guide. Since there is obviously more than one (you are working on the current one), I suspect that it is not a proper noun. Notes is the name of a specific text box and can be used as a proper noun.

 

You need to change which to that.  The part about “am working on” is a restrictive clause. This means that you need this information in the sentence – it restricts another part of the sentence (the current guide).  Use that before a restrictive clause.  A nonrestrictive clause can start with which.  It will have commas around it and is not necessary information at the moment.  (The current guide, which is about bird watching, has too much content.)

 

Content is a word, like data, that can be singular or plural.  When talking about electronic content, one will generally not add an s to the word.

 

You do not need the last comma.  You are asking “Can I push or remove?” Be careful with the use of can vs. may.  Are you asking “Can it be done?” or “May I do it?”  Since you are asking about two alternatives, you might be asking which one you should do.

 

To remove redundancy in the last part of the second sentence, I would rephrase to only use information once.

 

The current guide that I am working on has too much content for the Notes text box.  To reduce the text in the Notes text box, should some of the information be removed or pushed to the main text box?

The current Guide which I have been working on has too many contents in the Notes text box.  To reduce the text in the Notes text box, can I push some of the information to the main text box, or remove some information?

Is it the hypertext system?

1) You can omit 'which' if you want.

2) After 'which' if you do not tell only the moment or temporary thing prefer have/has been V+ing.

3)Content word is countable so it should be plural here with many

4)move to seems better  instead of push to .
