Allow some field settings to be overridden from the field layout designer #4321
If I create a field for example "Related Entry" with a limit of 1, I can only use this in other field layouts where only one related entry is also desired. Resulting in me having to create multiple fields for essentially the same purpose, with slight variations in the settings.
If the Limit could be set on the field layout, that would be great; I don't expect this to be easy as "limit" isn't a global setting same as the "required" flag is.
Maybe you could add an extra column in the fieldlayoutfields table which could accommodate some non global settings and grab the limit from there?
What do you think @brandonkelly ?
@brandonkelly Apologies I meant limit, not branch limit (i've edited for clarity).
My real life example was actually to do with entries, I have to create an additional field pointing at exactly the same entry source for the same purpose just because the limit is global to that field.

[Feature Request] Allow branch limit setting in section structure field layout rather than field settings
May 28, 2019
We have plans to explore all of this (including overriding field type-specific settings) from the field layout designer as part of a larger content refactoring project we’re planning for Craft 4 (#1524).
Good to have specific issues we can reference as we’re working on the changes, though, so I will keep this open and add it to the 4.0 milestone.
