I think I have might figured out this problem. If I have a custom builder page with say a paginated post list – and it is set to get “All Categories”, then the Mini Post List Widget will get all post in the category chosen by the widget, even if I set it to get only 1. If I uncheck the “All Categories” on the builder page, and instead check all categories separately the Mini Post List works fine and will retreive only the number of posts set in the widget.
