If you added metrics via "Add all metrics of this graph to" - "New custom graph..." an error like "Cannot load custom_graph from /omd/sites/MYSITE/var/check_mk/web/MYUSER/user_custom_graphs.mk: invalid syntax (, line)" was shown.

We have seen this especially while adding CPU utilization metrics of windows hosts.

A workaround was to edit the file "/omd/sites/MYSITE/var/check_mk/web/MYUSER/user_custom_graphs.mk" and change entries like "'help': l'CPU time spent in user space'" to "'help': 'CPU time spent in user space'".
