As others have pointed out, you don't have to; when you click the edit profile button, the first thing you see is all your favorite lists, and can edit which ones are downloaded and monitored. Your claim "Doesn't eliminate the fact that you can't tell what is or isn't active from the list of systems on the left" is doubly inaccurate. You can either right-click on an individual list to check its status, or call up and edit the status of every favorite list with a single button click.Nobody likes to right click on 50 favorite lists one at a time to determine whether or not they are on or off.
Well I suppose his statement is accurate which says "Nobody likes to . . . click on 50 favorite lists one at a time". For some reason I'm getting the impression that he isn't comprehending what we are saying: "You ain't gotta do that".Very true. Nobody likes to right click on 50 favorite lists one at a time to determine whether or not they are on or off.
I had previously pointed that out in post #18.^^^and that is a third option not previously mentioned!^^^
You don't even need to open the profile editor to see the status of all download/monitor settings for favorites in the current profile.
When Sentinel opens, just click and highlight the "Favorites Lists" header in the left window,
At that point, every favorites list is shown in the right window along with the "Download - Monitor" status for every favorites list.
Open Sentinel, one click..... can't get much simpler than that.
Oops. I misread your post and thought you were referring to opening the profile editor to see the favorite list status there.I had previously pointed that out in post #18.
I tought day did dat alreadyHere is a solution to all of these issues, which unfortunately will never be implemented because there is no money in updating Sentinel.
This thread started because the OP did not like that all favorites lists showed up in all profiles. I never liked this either. Here's the solution:
add a new tab, Favorites Lists, in the profile. Under that tab you find all of your favorites lists for all profiles listed with check boxes (exactly the way Service Types are now handled under their own tab). Check the ones you want to include on your profile main page. QED
(Among those you could still have the options to download/monitor.)
That tab controls which favorites lists are turned on/off by default, but it does not affect which lists are displayed on the profile main page (and scan selection tab), which is what the OP and many others have complained about.
