There's a size limit to notes? Really?

so being excited for iOS 9 and new features it brings to notes, I pushed myself to use notes more often. Just now though I tried to insert two pictures into notes and it said "max notes size limit reached"? There's a size limit? I just figured it would be as much as I wanted or probably my iCloud limit.

Oddly I noticed this too just yesterday. Had about 10 bullet points of text, and 4 or 5 pics inserted and it said "reached notes limit".

It would help if Apple tell us what the size limit is or if it is the size of the photo and not the note itself.

You'd think Apple would use your iCloud's private storage to host the files and insert a thumbnail in the note to save space.

Welp, guess I'm going back to notability! Uses iCloud, no limit and will backup to drop box if I want
