Source of annoyance

Postby notbob » Fri Feb 02, 2007 4:33 pm

I noticed in the ingredient browser, when choosing certain yeasts, that the info in the information box is cut short.

Is this fixable? I know I could go to the various web sites and copy and paste the missing info, myself.

I just wasn't sure if you knew about it.

I was trying to compare a few different yeasts that I'm not familiar with today and noticed it.

I can't remember if it's the same in the Grain field but I'll check. Seems like i remember this from before.

On my system I have the ability to scroll down if all the information does not fit into the viewable area. I am running WinXP.

I can also resize the dialog box, thereby not forcing me to scroll down because all the information is displayed.

cheers!

My information box is much bigger than the info displayed. Some items will fill the whole box up; some will just stop in mid-sentence after about 1 paragraph.

There is plenty of room. It seems like something automatic maybe limited the info that was copied to put in there...?

I see it now.

Ok, I see what you mean.

For example, the last sentence for WLP022 is...

"British milds, pa"

Yes, there are a few others that exhibit similar behavior like WLP 002, WLP008, etc

I was going to volunteer to make a list if it would help. I noticed quite a few in Yeasts.

It appears to be in all the categories, now that I look. Kinda random. Some may just be the lack of punctuation (period (.) ), but some seem to be cut off in mid-sentence.

I haven't looked at each item yet.

Looks like a character limit on the database field or something. It was probably accidently imposed in a later revision of BTP.

Well, that's sure what it seems like, but some of the other items have enough info on them, that the box becomes scrollable. So, it seems able to handle any amount it was given.

Curious..?
