Display text wrap to fit in the screen width would indeed be a good feature.

Since you asked for inputs…

I'm not sure if changing the ordering on display page would be a major hassle or not. I think that depends on the details of the SANA implementation.  Since we are using the OID tree structure and this implies some sort of organizational semantics (as opposed to a “flat” GUID) then it may not be such a bad thing to have OID visible on the page, but for everyday usage just to look up some information perhaps this could be just some sort of filter that is applied to the page by default and if you're really curious can be toggled on to display the column.

I agree that having the key items in the table wraparound in their cells relative to the page width would be a good improvement as opposed to having to scroll to infinity.

Ciao Gippo,

I do get your point.  While the OID is the only unique "handle" that we have in CCSDS it may not be of great interest to many of the users.  I would agree that it could be moved to the right, but right now it is uniformly displayed in that first location on all of the search pages.  Changing it would be a major hassle, and I doubt it is worth the effort.

I would like to ask the rest of the CESG, and the SANA Steering Group (SSG) if they have the same opinion?  Please speak up.

On the subject of SANA and how long lies display on the screen, I have another issue of my own.  Maybe we could fix it with shorter definitions, but long ones tend to spill off the screen. Which I think is also at the heart of Gippo's issue.  I do not know if there is a simple fix, but having long lines of display text wrap to fit in the screen width would seem to be a good feature.    Does anyone else share that opinion?

Thanks, Peter

        I was looking on SANA for a term and I applied the filter.
As the definitions are often long , the result is presented with an horizontal scroll bar with the effect that the book where the term is defined is "hidden" in the far part ofn the right of the screen.
Conversely the OID is immediately shown.
I can agree that OID is important but for sure is a very dedicated fields for experts and as user I am much more interested in knowing the book counting that definition.
Why not swapping the position of the fields leaving to the very expert user the digging of the OID value?
