view is cluttered

Postby danx55 » Wed Apr 05, 2017 3:39 am

hi all,

i find the main results view some what cluttered, especially on a laptop screen - can make seeing the preview pane difficult

imo need to have options to remove some items from the view maybe?

thanks

Hi,

you can right-click on the column headers and select Choose Columns to bring a dialog that will allow you to choose which columns you want to see in the result view. The same dialog is also accessible from the bottom bar, on the right is a small button "View"

Hope this helps,
Jogy

hi Jogy,

many thanks - sorry don't think I was as clear as I could have been in my post :/ :) ...for me the quick action bar is of particular problem as it takes up space and I have yet to use it
....plus being able to hide the column filter fields might be good too

main issue for me is using it on a laptop some of the time - makes the preview pane almost useless I find

cheers

What's that? I can't find it in the Help file.

Do you mean what X1 calls the Favorites Bar?

Once again, it isn't clear to me what you are trying to achieve.

As Jogy says, you can remove any columns you like. But they come back when you next start X1.

The way to fix that is to get the columns looking as you want and then to save the arrangement as a new search.

By the way, there seems to be a bug. The toggle for Show Navigation Tree does not always work.
