Bring back the interface size options
It's kind of crazy that ShipStation would remove an integral part of the interface, specifically the interface size options. The font is way too large for me at the current setting. I had my order grid set up to see as much info as possible, and now I can't see it all at a glance.
The following is the response I received from a support case:
"The most recent release of ShipStation (from 3/9/17) changed the interface so that medium-sized UI is the global default for all ShipStation users. This change will streamline the process of developing and testing future advancements with our interface. I'm sorry for any inconvenience that this causes. "
This needs to come back in the next release!
Hi @guntap, thank you for bringing this up! Have you looked into changing the zoom on your browser? I’ve found that Chrome will only resize the tab you’re looking at so it doesn’t effect your other sites.
Also, what kind of information do you use to ship? There may be some things we can tweak to help you see all the critical information on your screen.
Yes, I am using both the sidebar and lower pane. The fact is the small interface resize option helped condense everything. The zoom feature is about 80% effective, but it doesn't resize everything as compactly.
Thanks for the update! Are you currently using the sidebar and lower pane to ship or organize your orders?
In the sidebar, you can click and drag sections around when looking at orders. You can drag the "Customer" section to the top to view your customer's address and whether it's been verified.
The lower pane can show you which items are ordered, or can be a working space where you craft your batches. You can also adjust the height of the lower panes.
Using both of these together can help you have more insight to your orders without clicking into order details.
Yes, I'm currently using the zoom feature, but it doesn't seem to resize everything correctly and the interface looks a bit off. Fonts appear tall, thin and a bit wider than they should be. Also, the table grid isn't quite as compact as before, specifically row height.
My orders table has 18 columns, all of which are necessary for me to organize and ship. No columns can be removed otherwise I will lose functionality. The minimum interface size option was very helpful to display the entire grid.
