Maximizing window views in Prognosis Windows Client

In the Prognosis Windows client, is there a way to actually resize or maximize the window views for such items like configuration, thresholds and analysts?  Selecting the maximize icon in the upper right corner of the corresponding windows does nothing.  When you hover over the outer borders of the window it acts like it will allow you to drag to resize, but nothing happens.  It there some trick to unlock this functionality so that these windows (confiigurations, thresholds, etc.) in the Windows client can actually be expanded from their default small size to reduce the amount of scrolling needed up/down and side to side to view its contents?

 

Thanks

Re: Maximizing window views in Prognosis Windows Client

Dennis,

I  have requested that the maximize button be enabled and to allow the window to be resized to a larger size years ago.   

I the mean time, I copy the contents from analyst or config, to file editor and edit the contents from the file editor.

Once i have completed my editing, I cut and past it back into the analyst or Config.   For databases and thresholds, I am unable to copy and past.  But expaning them when viewing them would be a plus.

Re: Maximizing window views in Prognosis Windows Client

Resizing windows is one thing that is sorely needed in the UI (the arbitrary limit of roughly 733x555 pixels is infuriating on today's hardware). 

Also disabling the default windows shortcuts has me baffled, why do we need to copy/paste/select all with mouse actions when editing analysts, rather than using the keyboard?

Hi @JanSedlacek,

 

Unfortunately I'm not aware of any way that would allow the properties window to be re-sizeable, but I've asked our experts in case anything has changed since @LeonArensFNBO last enquired. I'll let you know if there may be an undocumented way to enable this if one exists.

 

Also, most of the windows short-cuts also do work for me when editing the properties window of a Configuration or an Analyst Rule. I'm not able to undo an action (CTRL+Z) and I can't select the entire contents of the properties window (CTRL+A), but I can use CTRL+C and CTRL+V to copy and paste text. I can also use CTRL+Home to put my cursor at the very start of the window, then use CTRL+SHIFT+END to select all of the text in the window rather than having to right-click, then click 'select all'. I can't explain why you wouldn't be able to use these (there shouldn't be any settings in Prognosis itself that would prevent this).

Scott Clement

Hi @JanSedlacek,

 

I received confirmation there's no current way to increase the size of the property window in the thick client.

If this is something that you would like to see in the product, I'd recommend requesting it as an enhancement either by submitting a support case or discussing it with your account manager directly. The higher the demand for an enhancement, the more likely it'll be added to the roadmap for inclusion in a future release.

 

Regards,

Scott
