Increase the items limit of Nested Collection Lists (currently max 5 only!!!)

The Nested collection list function is super useful, but it is currently limited to 5 items.

It is actually fine and reasonable to have a limit, but not 5 only...

Webflow team, can you increase it to 20 or more?

    At least make it an even number! I mostly pull images to display in a grid as I'm sure you know the 12 column grid and, well, 12 is not dividable by 5. Not even close.

    Webflow those of us who think about nested collections also understand the risks regarding speed if we do crazy things with it.
    For the straight forward implementations it's a none issue,... do you have any timeline in the limit increase? Or when it will be considered?

    Absolute must have! A Webfow staff member advised met to use this workaround in the meanwhile It's not ideal but until they release this feature you can get your project working!

    This HAS to be an artificial limit (i.e. a limit intentionally imposed in the system). Why would the limit exist otherwise? Is it a for performance reasons? Either way, the 5 item limit is a bit ridiculous. I certainly can understand needing to cap it, but 5? Please increase.

    I did so much work to get to the point where my site was functional. Then I discovered this glaring ridiculous issue. Please fix this.

    PS.: If the limitation is based on a ressource-factor: The poor workarounds we have to do because of this, are probably more ressource-consuming for Webflow than just increasing the number even a little bit.

    These micro-frustrations are the worst part of Webflow. You find the solution, are happy that it works super smoothly and than you discover always an unexplainable limitation. Super sad, thumbs down.

    Why have only 5 items? It's a restriction for many people

    Currently I need it to have at least 6... I'm one off. Please increase the max.

    I Love Webflow but this is a huge limitation that if solved would increase the power of webflow 10 fold.

    Unlimited nesting of collection lists:

    I still don't understand why nested collection lists are like this, we still found a round-a-bout way to display what we wanted to display so it didn't really limit us, It was just annoying to get around. Is it a problem with webflow's servers in general? I guess it might be that, I'm pretty sure it wasn't planned ahead in the early builds of webflow and because of that it became really hard to implement as of today.
