• Msg Scan Question

    From Charles Blackburn@VERT/THEFBO to All on Fri Sep 29 15:50:18 2023
    hey all

    so couple of synchro questions....

    1. in the default "scan for messages to you" option, that works fine but then i have to scroll up to find what areas etc they were.
    is there any way to stop the listing of echos that don't have a message in them for "me"?

    2. is there an option to do a new message scan like normal but only show messages that are to me and not all of the new ones?

    had a couple of users ask me that the last couple of days.

    If you have screen pausing enabled, it should automatically pause for a key press ("Hit a key" prompt") for each screen-full of text.

    2. is there an option to do a new message scan like normal but only show messages that are to me and not all of the new ones?

    When you perform the "Your message search" you should be prompted whether to show the entire message to you or just the meta-data summary (to/from/subject). You're also prompted to should only un-read messages.

    I think the only thning missing from your ask is to not the names of sub-boards that are searched but do not contain any messages for you. Feature requests can be submitted at gitlab.synchro.net
