Larger Variables Overview window

Hi there,

I am using Qlik Sense and I am a fan of speaking variable names in the sheet editor.

Unfortunately, the "Variables Overview" window is quite small and you can see a lot of "..." very quickly when you are using speaking names for variables. The result ist that you always have to click on the corresponding variables first to see which ones are actually involved. This is particularly unpleasant if the variables only differ in the last part of the name.

Wouldn't it be possible to display the window with a relative width or a larger fixed width than the current one?

What is your opinion about that?

 

Many thanks in advance.

Greetings from Germany, Tobias Schmundt

Hi

The variable UI was updated in Feb 2022 CM release and in SaaS . New features include larger UI, hover over for longer variable names/definition search, duplicate variable and bulk delete.

 

Thanks for using ideation
