Is there any way to disable the compact view when viewing a group in V6?


Unfortunately not.

Been a user of Newsbin for many years, but I personally despise "compact view". Tried it in previous versions, and just dont like it. I find even with v6b7, the groups that I visit, the majority of them, generally just compact the par set files and leave the rest intact.

Being an older user, (MS-DOS and WordStar days) pre GUI, I prefer to do things manually. For what I dl, it has now become more work. There seems to be a few users, like me who just dont want compact view.

Bring back the option to click it on or off

the guys are having discussions about this, it was introduced to handle larger groups and memory better

5.59 isnt going anywhere so you dont have to update to the newest version when available

I would also like to disable compact view. It would be nice if I had the option to turn it off.

I uninstalled and went back to 559.
Not being able to disable the compact view is a stopper for me.

Gotta agree on this. I just downloaded 6 and I'm reeeeaallly unhappy about not being able to switch off compact view. I'm gonna give it a few days, but I'm likley to go back just because of this. :(

+1 to allow enable/disable compact view.
