I feel like I should know this answer, but I do not, nor have I been able to find it.

What's the maximum number of sections a finished project can have?

255.

Has something to do with archive.
Cheers,

If you want to know why - it's to do with Archives file counters - every file there is called 1 of 36, 2 of 36, 3 of 36 etc.
But their counters have a limited capacity and can only go to 255( binary stuff - will hold 255 which is FF (sort of 2 digits) and FF+1 is 100 (which is 3 Digits) so it overflows and becomes just 00 )
