What is the biggest window size you can view without getting the error message “Data is unavailable at this zoom level.” For me, it is about 8kb.

The actual numeric limit is 8192 bases for pile-up plots (this may change in future versions). But as Gabe mentioned, the limit is removed once the coverage background task finishes.

Yes, there is a zoom limit above which we switch the rendering into a mode that shows strand-colored coverage and maximum depth, gapped alignments and mismatches in the coverage and pile-up plots respectively.

If you are seeing the "Data is unavailable at this zoom level." we were not able to build the "coverage data" file for your source. This is most likely because the BAM file your are viewing was not in a writeable location or you canceled the background task of computing that coverage.

Note that even while that background task is running, you can always zoom below the threshold to see pile-up data.
