GUI Trims the sensor name




I have several sensor which are 70 characters long and with the latest version of PRTG, the sensor name is getting trimmed after certain characters. Now, this only happens when you view the sensors under the device but if you view individual sensor, it shows the entire sensor name. Is there a way to change the view of the GUI somewhere from PRTG?

On top of your PRTG overview, next to the search field, you have several view options. Please try the fourth option (last grey button). That view should show you all characters of your sensor names.
