Word list download limits

There is no limit to the number of word lists a user can generate, however, there is a limit to the length.

The number of items in a word list displayed on the screen or downloaded:

wordlist generated from:user corpuspreloaded corpus
max number of items:no limit, all items will be downloaded or displayed1,000 items

Bypassing the limits

Regular expressions can be used to exclude unwanted items from the word list so that the 1,000-word limit might be sufficient.
