Move Export Options

Received Response


Hi - is there a way to move the export options from the bottom of the analysis to the top, similar to how we can move the paging controls?




  • Is it possible? Yes.

    Should you do it? No. That's a total waste of time and when you start doing it like described in all the blog posts which exist about changes like this - you'll pretty much do it wrong.

    Christian - thank you!  So I am intrigued by your response.  It is possible, but you recommend not to do it because it's a waste of time?  I did find information about moving the print options, but nothing about the export options, and using Java script, which I am not interested in maintaining.

  • Hello Prudence,

    The GUI's built using loads of reference files and changing its core behaviour is always a tricky thing to do because of

    - maintenance
    - upgrades

    Pretty much nothing you do can ever be assured at 100% to be working again in the next big release. JS is one way, the other is altering the core files which - as said - first of all will not necessarily stay the same each time.

    And secondly: there are changes which never can be domne in the "custom style / skin" package, so for each and every time you upgrade the system or install a bigger bundle'll lose your chagens and will have to to them again.

    This is an amazing explanation and I fully understand now why can you? yes ... should you? no!

    Thank you!
