too long a report Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

I just did a fleetscan of a fleet with 5 different classes ships, and the report is longer than you can stretch the report column, under the scanning tab.

removing the -class text for every ship might help somewhat. (as that's 5times -class), or maybe even simplifiying to icons only (holding mouse over icon could give tooltip telling you what it is.)

Yes, with the new ship-icons it might even be possible to get rid of most of the text, and replace it with tooltips. For now I will just make that column a little wider. By the way you can do that yourself, by clicking on the right most edge of the column header, and drag it further to the right.

I think I had reached the maximum, I even widened the window and it didn't seem to be able to expand more. But I see now that maybe because I was trying to squish the other tab too much.

Here

First string - military-scan, second - fleet.

1. Scan report string too long. I had to switch to 1280 px screen resolution to read full report at galaxy map window.
2. Fleet and military scan report shouldn't be the same I think.
3. Expired scan-reports vanish. I think it is better to save them - even expired scan info is very useful.

1) Well, I'll make that column wider so that you can scroll through it.
2) That is because previous scan information is automatically applied to other scan results, if applicable - but I understand it might be confusing.
3) I agree - they should not vanish.
