Name Format for Seating Chart / Table Images
« on: October 22, 2014, 07:04:05 PM »
Hey,

Great software, love it to bits!!

I haven't been able to find this question/suggestion in the forums yet so hopefully someone can point me in the right direction if it has.

What I would like to be able to do is have the 'Name Format' as "(First Name) (Last Name)" in all the stats windows, players lists etc, But display "Nicknames" on the Seating Chart (Table Image).
I believe the way to do this at the moment is to change the 'Name Format' to "Nickname" but then all the database changes to this format.
When I export stats I end up having to concatenate First Name and Last Name as the output for Name is set as "Nickname"
If I change it to "(First Name) (Last Name)" then the seating chart/table images have oversize names that doesn't look nice, plus most people are known by nickname here.

Ultimately have 'Name Format' as "(First Name) (Last Name)" but display "Nickname" on the Table images.

Sorry if this has already been covered, I couldn't find it.

Tom

At this time there's only one preference for name formats, and it affects everything, application-wide.  I suppose it would be nice to be able to override the name format for the various layout screens.  I'll have to see how much work would be involved.
