OSCAR request to display more machine settings

OSCAR request to display more machine settings
I notice that when I use my O2Ring or other oximeter (which I’m doing every night now), the display on the left doesn’t show as much as I (or helpful people here on AB) want to see.  For example, it pushed EPR off the bottom.
I’m using OSCAR 1.2.0 on Mac OS

Is it possible to do two things?:
Take out the extra line returns above and below the name of the oximeter?,
Take out the extra line return after the heading “Machine Settings” (so it is more like “Statistics” above, which doesn’t have a space between bold heading and the data list),
Move EPR/Flex up under the pressure listings, above Antibacterial Filter and Climate Control (two items which no one has ever asked me to show)

Maybe move up next under EPR:
Mask
Ramp settings

This would really help as I scroll through the daily data, day-to-day, and glance at my O2 and whatever I tweaked on the machine.  And help when I post a screenshot here on AB. 

Thanks for considering this!

RE: OSCAR request to display more machine settings
Currently everything after the mode/pressure settings is listed alphabetically. It seems like pressure mode would be a good candidate for being promoted as well (since it also shows up in the statistics display, so we already consider it a significant setting).

I'm not sure whether we should treat Ramp specially, since it's not really a therapeutic setting per se. A nice UI enhancement might be to add a preference for which settings to display by default, along with a "Show all" button in that list if any are hidden.

The extra blank lines around Viatom are due to the machine stats display leaving room for the manufacturer and PAP mode in addition to the model. That could probably be adjusted, along with the other ones you mention.

Ah, so much technical debt...

It would be good for those that use the AutoSet 10 in Soft Mode to have that show up too, but I think that has already been included on the To Do list?

A bit of blank space does seem to make things easier to find, visually.

I find if I hold down the Control key and use the mouse scroll wheel I can change the font size and fit everything in more easily.

You can change the font size and style in the Preferences section for it to be permanent too.

This!

Thank you. At least for now with this adjustment it shows the list down to Humidity Level. I don’t want to make it smaller, because it is already looking kinda tiny on my laptop.  Can’t see ramp, but I’m not doing much with that lately.

You can also scroll the left panel by itself to see more lines.
