Doesn't более imply that this is a comparative declaration? Shouldn't it be "She likes a shorter text more."

"Более" here modifies "короткий" not "нравится". Literally it's "She likes a more short text".

That would use "ей больше нравится" I believe.

is there a reason "She likes the shorter text" was not accepted?
