default_list _view.jpg
wanted_list_view.jpg
Good day. (1.7dev) Attached are two screen shots of an hierarchal list from which an object type can be selected. The default appearance of the screen has the slider bar at the bottom of the display appearing to the right i.e the lower level in the hierarchy. The second screen shot (wanted) shows the same list but with the slider bar manually pulled to the left. Is it possible to make the second version the default. Also if possible with the vertical slider at the top of the list. Second question is when a list item is marked as inactive it is greyed out, where can I change the colour of the greyed out font to something that is readable?. Any help would be gratefully received.

Hi I am using Collective Access and there are metadata elements available in the UI editor that are not listed in the metadata elements screen
how do I get them to be active?
right now they are not active and I can't figure out how to edit them directly
nevermind
I can see them under the relationship screen

lol :)
I did have one question-my install has the PB Coverage authority, but no data actually populates
Is this something I'll have to download?
or I guess since it's a location based metadata field-it needs a lookup field
but I'm not sure how to link it to an external look up table like GeoNames or another place name controlled vocab

You'd have to define the entries in it
If you want to use Geonames is its place you'll have to change the profile to relabel it as "coverage"
