Increase repeating section limit for an existing form

The original design of a form for an application set a limit of 10 rows for a repeating section.  At the time this limit was way more than anyone anticipated would be needed.  However, a user has completed a form that requires more than 10 rows.  I removed the limit and republished the form, but it does not apply to existing forms, only for new form.  Is there a way to allow more rows for certain existing forms without asking the user to complete a brand new form?

hey @baltner ,


i just tried it and it worked fine.


the only difference i can see it that i changed the value from 3 to 5... if i remove the value in "max rows" than it doesnt work anymore.

Actually, I figured out what the problem was. It was originally set to 10 as a maximum. I mistakenly thought that removing the maximum setting (leaving it empty) would mean there was no maximum (unlimited) but apparently it means 1. So I've reset it again, this time to 20, which will likely never be exceeded for this app.  Thanks for the reply.
