Indent creates useless white space

Jump to solution

Hello,

When looking at topics with several responses I've noticed that a few of them are indented. Obviously depending on where the Reply button was used by the autor. This is causing a lot of useless white space on the screen while reading.

I would recommend to leave them aligned to the left. Can this be done?

Regards,
Sebastian Koehler

This has been updated.  You only get the indent now in threaded mode.  Linear no longer shows any indent (as the indentation in linear view was wrong anyway.)

Hi Sebastian,

Thanks for your message. I will discuss it within the community team to see if we can do anything about this.

It looks like indeed it depends on where members reply and then it either indents to show all replies at the specific level.

Greetings,

Bill

This is the way it used to be unless you selected under Preferences with the non-linear layout.

When I first noticed it, I thought the Preferences were changed.  They still don't have this for HPE's forum, which is good.

But it was never obvious what the indent was, since so subtle or there is a max indent.

I no longer see that Preferences that had the indented replies. ??  I thought it might be "threaded" but that doesn't seem to change things.

I only used it infrequently, when I wanted to see who was replying to what.

The indent is to note threading.  Dennis, I'm new to this system.   Where do/did you go to select if you wanted threaded or linear view?   - Kim

Thanks.  I did some testing.   You get the indent whether in Linear or Threaded view.   The only difference is the order of the messages and how they're displayed.  😕
