    1. Hi silla! I checked on the Modern Themes website for the themes & plugins documentation but I didn’t see anything talking about having limits to the number of projects.

      I’ve sent them a message on Twitter and if they reply, I’ll ask them about it then I’ll let you know. You’re welcome and thanks for stopping by.
