hi all. i’ve created a couple nested components but am having issues trying to create a third-level component. i try to add a new field, select the component type, select existing component, and then in the drop down list i only get 6 options to choose from, none of the others (6). there’s no scroll option in that dropdown.

is this by design? is this a bug in the query that fetches options or UI that displays them? something else?


I am also facing the same issue.
@jblythe-cc did you find any solution?

got an answer on the discord channel . there is only support for 2 levels of components, i.e. can’t have a component nested N+1 when N > 1

There is another response in this forum that solves the problem.
The problem you experienced is just a frontend issue, the backend supports more levels of repeatable components How to solve "nested repeating components limit"? - #2 by McSpace
