PRTG Network monitor Device Tree View



Hi I have just upgraded our companies PRTG Network monitor to

I noticed that in the Device Tree View; Down Sensors for a Group (which is not expanded) appear in individual boxes whilst the up sensors are all displayed in one green box with the number of sensors which are up (as they are usually displayed even in the previous version).

In the previous version sensors which were down were displayed in one red box with the number of sensors which are down and next to it another box in green displaying the up sensors.

Is there a setting to arrange the down sensors in one red box instead of being displayed individually please? I hope I described my issue clearly :) Thanks for the help..
