0000659: Extension list limits
It seems there is a limit to what can be seen in the "Open Extension" list. I have hit that limit many times, and had to remove extensions just so I can see the ones I use towards the bottom of the list. Yes, I read all of the ones I use. I am strange that way.

I tried loading the Blue Lacuna extensions, and lost three authors from the bottom of the list. And one of them was me! (I write my own for my use... I have thought of submitting them, but am waiting till I test them more).

It is not a huge problem, but has added some inconvenience when I realize I can not read an extension that is further down on the "Open Extension" list. I am at the limit now, so with every new extension I want to see/use, I have to remove one that is already installed.

According to Windows, there are currently 184 files in my extension folder. I am guessing all (or at least most) of them are extensions.
Add multiple extensions. Keep adding until the ones further down the list are not visible in the "Open Extension" list.
No tags attached.

Confirmed; the menu seems to show the first 200.

I've made the simplest fix possible for this: I've raised the maximum number of extension menu items from 200 to 1000. If you've got more than 1000 you should really get rid of a few :-)
