    I’m after being able to set the limit to 3 for results from the search skill so the my chat doesn’t scroll too far. Displaying 10 results is overwhelming to the user. However if the first 3 don’t satisfy them I want to allow the user to ask for the next 3 results, and I will set the offset.

    The Watson Assistant web chat widget displays 3 results by default and gives the possibility to "show more results".
