How do I disable the add sensor item in the device tree view

Hello,

In version 17.4.35, while I appreciate the new interface, I would like to remove all of the numerous "Add Sensor" buttons on every line in the device tree view under Medium view. I would also like to make each item wider so I can see more of the name and details as well as to adjust the font size/icon size down to make them stretch across the screen more. I am unable to find any item under Settings or Management to adjust this.

Thank You, Jason

Hi Jason,

Thank you for the KB-Post. All these minor tweaks, like removing certain objects as well as changing (font) sizes are only possible through CSS customisations of the web interface. And with all things customising, there isn't official support on it I'm afraid.

Is there somewhere to submit change requests or recommendations? I would also like to see the "Add Sensor" button disappear from every row on my device tree. There are currently plenty of different ways to get a sensor added to a device, this appears to be overkill in my opinion.

Please add an option to hide this, this is triggering the hell out of me to see hundreds of "Add Sensor" buttons.

Please try adding the following line

.sensorTree .sensor.addSensorButton {display: none !important;}

to the \PRTG Network Monitor\webroot\css\styles_custom_v2.css file. Save and reload the page with a cleared browser cache.

I agree with the other posters on this one. Had PRTG for years and the add sensor just adds clutter. If you're a user of PRTG, you know how to add a sensor - you don't need to be handheld. It makes my eyes want to check the add sensor button for a "status" and it's a waste of time. Please remove the add sensor button, right click is the best way.
