According to http://www.metatrader4.com/en/releasenotes/215, first paragraph

1. Increased the maximum size of custom tooltips for graphical objects to 128 symbols. The tooltips are set using the OBJPROP_TOOLTIP property.


Yet there seems to still be a 63 character limit on the tooltip [per line].  How do you place line breaks so the tooltip text can have multiple lines?

It doesn't seem like 1 line can have all 128 characters


/n doesn't seem to work

I have [#1310336].  Are you saying that you cannot have multiple lines in a tooltip?  Or is it a bug?  In addition to the 128 character bug is really only 63 characters?

I'm reaching out to other mt4 users in the hopes that someone else may have experienced the same problem and maybe can provide solution. 

Personally I think that the bug tracker should be public.  In this way, we don't have to wonder if MQ has looked into it or not.

Both appear to be fixed in build 890. Multiple lines are now handled, and the limit seems to be 256 characters.
