What is the max number of points in vector graphic?

```Bernd may just have got this right.

The list of points goes negative  after 32767 if I place a higher upper limit in the repeat loop. I guess something "wrapped" around the max. Here is the handler:

on mouseUp
repeat with y = 1 to 50000
put "100," & y & return after temp
end repeat
set the points of grc 1 to temp
put the points of grc 1 into temp1
end mouseUp

Now if you look at the point list, right at the middle, we get an inflection point (Hermann? You there?):

100,32758
100,32759
100,32760
100,32761
100,32762
100,32763
100,32764
100,32765
100,32766
100,32767
100,-32768
100,-32767
100,-32766
100,-32765
100,-32764
100,-32763
100,-32762
100,-32761

Odd...

Hi Al,

I think Craig ran into a display problem, not a number of points of a
graphic problem. Because the points made the graphic to large.
Similar to maximum of a line. It can hold 65,536 but only display 32768

I ran into this when vectorizing an image into graphic objects, above 65,536
points it will only display a part of the points. Up to 65,536 it will
display all points; apparently provided they are within the display limit.

Kind regards
Bernd
