Sensor names cut off



It is extremely annoying when i click on a device and view the list of it's sensors, that the columns are not re-sizable. Actually, the "sensor" column appears to be plenty wide enough, it's just that the sensor name is truncated after approx 32 characters. So even though the column is 100 (approx) characters wide, it is mostly wasted space. I see no way to change this. Anyone know a hack for this? It's really driving me crazy

Was this included in version 9? I have upgraded but it's still a major issue. I have to click on each sensor to see what it is.

Justin, we are still working on this and hope to have a solution ready next week. I am sorry for the delay.

No, it is still an issue. Although i have been using the Enterprise Console app more and more and it handles long names better than the web interface.

Looking forward to a solution for this. If it really happens next week I will be happy!
