I'd like to make Venn diagram from Limma `decideTests` results. Limma `vennDiagram` function is limited to maximum of 5 sets. I tried to make the plot using `veneluer` and 'vennerable` packages in R but I was not successful.

appreciate if someone could help me with this issue.

Thanks a lot!

More than 5 sets... and you expect the plot to be interpretable by mere humans? I would suggest using the output of vennCounts to create UpSet plots instead (https://cran.r-project.org/package=UpSetR).

Thanks for your suggestion Aaron, I will look in that.

I don't have any plans to offer Venn diagrams in limma for more than 5 sets, because I don't find Venn diagrams with more than 5 sets to be at all useful. They seem far too contrived to help with interpretation. With so many sets, just looking at the tabular output from vennCounts() is better. Alternatively you could try Aaron's suggestion of the UpSetR package, which produces what is essentially a pictorial representation of the vennCounts table.
