Reduce white-space between sensors?



Is there are way to reduce the amount of vertical white-space displayed in the device tree view?

Regardless of the size chosen over half the vertical pixels are white-space rather than useful information. This might be good for people with monitors in Portrait mode, but it's no use with widescreen ratio monitors in landscape. I'd rather have a compact view where I can see everything without scrolling, than a pretty looking page that doesn't show me what I need.

I've checked the Settings but couldn't find anything.

Thank you for the KB-Post. The amount of white space shows in the device view does depend on the structure of your device tree to a certain extend. The more devices per group and sensors per device you have the less white space will be shown. To get a feeling for your installation, can you share a screenshot so that we can an impression of the ratio (white space vs. information) on your installation? Thank you!

best regards.
