Layout Customization - Resizing

Post by Liquidtravel » Fri Sep 30, 2016 02:26

Hello all,

I have read as much as I can about the how to customize my layouts. I have been able to do a lot but there are some things that I still cannot understand so I thought I would make a post and see if I could get some help.

I can move things around just fine and I can resize field as well, but there are certain fields, like CNS [%]: that resize but only on the input side (right). Where it reads, CNS [%] cannot be resized. If I continue to reduce the size from right to left, before the space between CNS [%] changes, I have already closed off too much space on the right and the input side is gone. Is there a way to control how much space is display after the label? There are several fields that react the same way - CNS[%], Dive Number, O2, etc...) What is odd is like with 02, it should be the same as He: but they are not. The O2: label is far away from the input field and if I try and resize to reduce the size, the input (right) side will disappear before the space between the drop down and label changes. With the He: side, you can see in the attached image, the label He: is right next to the drop down. Any ideas?

Thanks so much.

CNS[%] resized from right to left closing off the input field on the right so far you can't see the input.

The labels are sized automatically by the largest label in the same group. So if you want to avoid that, you have to combine fields with shorter labels within their own group, then they will automatically get shorter labels. As you can see in the screenshot below, the items with the red background color are all grouped together and have the same label width, determined by the longest label.
