How many database keys can I create? / database keys not showing up

    I made around 5 extra database keys, and now every database key I add in the listing setup, can’t be used in an “add custom field” under under advanced search fields.

    Is this a bug? Or are we only allowed to create a certain amount of DB keys? There are still many db-keys/search options I want to add.

    No upper case or spaces were used in my db-keys.

    I am using the latest directory press version.

    Also if I am only allowed to enter a very limited amount of DB-keys, how can I delete db-keys I do not use to make room for DB-keys I want to use?

    Here you can see what I mean. First jpeg is a screen capture of my custom fields with database key, next jpeg is a screen of the list of database keys I can choos from when adding a custom advanced search fields. Some database keys I made are available, but most of them arent’t. How can this be solved?

    How long does it usually take for support to respond? I made a ticket yesterday, soon after the advice of Clive, but haven’t heard from support since then.
