    I think I just encountered a limit of the amount of information that can be posted onto OSD, when tried to put one more value got message:

    "Warning! Your are trying to display too many text information in the OSD. Displayed text will be truncated causing some information to be lost (...)"

    Same with graphs, looks like 18 is a limit.

    Can you somehow get around this limitation? Does a higher value of indications have any lethal effect on OSD or is it justified otherwise? I need sth like 20 graphs and few more values. Thanks!

    Hypertext limit is 8KB per each OSD client text slot. It is not planned to extend it further, sorry.

    In this case, solution may be to extend the value to more rows, am I right?

    That's not a question of disliking answering, that's a question of disliking reading answers given. You do not affect and cannot bypass total hypertext limit by rearranging data to more rows.

    This is what I understood, but what interests me is what should I do, reduce the number of sensors, shorten the description of the value or how?
    Sorry if that sounds amateur but seriously don't know what I should do.

    Reduce amount of text you're displaying.

    Usually it doesn't take that much, like 'CPU' - 55%.
    But in few places i've put more characters. So it's enough to shorten the description?

    I don't know how to explain it further. You hit 8KB total text limit. You _must_ shorten it. I cannot add anything to this thread, sorry.
