I just tested this with VisiLogic 9.8.80 and Don2015 is correct. I also tested with 9.8.65 and it doesn't have the problem.
@Cara Bereck Levy, could you forward this to the correct person as a bug report with 9.8.80?
I think it's better to create a jpg image with all static icons/symbols and use it as background on that page.
Then add all binary/list elements and other variables above the background image.
Number of display elements limited to reasonable number to minimize display refresh time, which enlarge scan time.
If scan time is not so important for you, you can forward your question to firstname.lastname@example.org
Support persone will reply you with personal recommendation.
By the way, there is still a bug somewhere deep inside. The SMS communications still hangs from time to time, and then the only solution is to completely reset power to the panel.
I'm using Cinterion BGS2T modems and initially the communication were hanging very often. Then I found it might be due to the fact that other language messages are allowed only 1/2 of length of the English language messages. I truncated everything as much as I could, making sure the maximum length was not exceeded. Frequent hangs went away. However there still remains some instability in form of hanging SMS comms once every 2 weeks to 3-4 months, with no other way to solve than to restart everything completely (resetting power to the modem doen't help, reinitializing comms doesn't help also).
I guess, there is something wrong with the comms buffer within PLC, but this is just a wild guess...
