Too much data to draw

Very simple chart with more than 1000 objects can't be drawn on screen. Sampling is turned off.

This always happens on multiple charts. All other visualization tools can display that amount of entries.

The error message says there is an option that can adjust the chart objects, can't find that setting.

Operating system used: Centos

    Hi @galghaith

    The number of objects being drawn is based on the cardinality of the columns you select for the grouping and the values. While you’re dataset only has 3,239 rows, the cardinality between the values in the rows could be much higher. When you attempt to use these values in the charts, DSS calculates the cardinality between them and will throw the error message if there are more than 10,000 points to plot.
    Unfortunately, this limit cannot be changed. You could start with a new chart and not adjust any of the settings for the variables on the X/Y axis or the settings like animation or sub-charts and then make incremental changes to test the cardinality.
    Please let us know if you have any questions.
