Since I do a lot of speaking, I find myself using the my clippings function for illustrations and examples. When I transfer my clippings to MSWord, I receive a notice that I have exceeded the clippings limit and the quote I wanted is not available. Does anyone know how I can adjust the clippings limit?

I know there is a limit ,but not sure how much. Here is an old posting from a reader about clippings:

I did a test with a DRM'd Amazon book and a non-DRM'd book.

Using text size 1, with the Amazon book I was able to clip 39 pages. I got the error on the 40th page.

Using text size 1, with a non-DRM'd book, I clipped 80 pages with no problem. My fingers got tired so I quit, but I think you can draw your own conclusions. I did this AFTER the first test, so the limit is not in the myclippings.txt file itself. All the clips from both tests were in there.

DRM'ed books are limited by the fair usage rules/laws/conventions, which means you can't clip more than 10% of the book (I think) because you can export clippings. There's no legal way to get around the limitation and even if you erase your current clippings, you will not be able to take more.
