Increase the number of CMS references allowed

I've had situations where I have a page designs that need lots of fields to accommodate the different types of content on the page. To avoid the 30 field limit on the template I use multi references. But I quickly run out of references I can use.

    Paying customer here. I was about to upgrade, but now I'm about to leave completely.

    Can't work with just 5 (or 10) ref fields...

    Please increase the number of multi-reference fields that one can use per CMS collection... this will be very useful in the project I am working on.

    Stuck on a project without the ability to have more than 5 multi-reference fields. Please unlock this capability for users.

    I'm in dire need of this as well. I have no idea what I'm going to do to accomplish some of my clients needs. One reason I cannot switch completely over to Webflow from Wordpress etc. Having only 5 reference's is a pretty sad number to be honest :(. PLEASE remove limitation.

    Thank you Webflow team!

    I am a paying customer as all other people that have commented and upvoted. Webflow, it's your responsability to respond to your paying customer's requests. Remove the limitation!

    Thank you.

    Please adjust this limitation. 5 is just too low--please consider at least 8-10.

    This is a feature I would be willing to pay more money for. It should at least be available as an option on some premium plans, or as an optional upgrade. I would love to use Webflow for all my creation needs but given the complexity of the systems I am trying to design I am not sure I will be able to use Webflow. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE TAKE MY MONEY

    I wonder why Webflow would limit the potential of its users in such a way. The 5 limit and the impossibility to nest more than one collection per page is incapacitating.

    This affects us too, we'd love to see this increased to 10 at least, perhaps even 20.

    This is so limiting! Really hoping to see some movement with this soon.

    Honestly, there is no point for me to pay to use Webflow without at least 200 multi-references. Without this the manual overhead required to build what I want to build will take just as long in Webflow as if I hand code everything on a static website.

    I could also see us needing additional CMS references for dynamic relationships between products/categories with Webflow Ecommerce!
