"Connect through host" GUI

We use direct connections for most of our endpoints and often relay through a main server at the site to get access. When setting up the connections the first time, in the connection properties of each remote client, under Connection > Network > Connect through the host: we drop down the menu to select the main site server.  We store each client in their own folder under the main address book whcih is a central address book on a self hosted server.

This list follows no order that I can understand, so it is often difficult to find the server we are looking for.

Can we request 2 changes:

1. Can this list be in alphabetical order arranged by the folder the clients are listed in
2. Can the separator [shown as --- ClientFolder] be shown in BOLD to make it easier to read.

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for your message.

1. The list actually does show connections and folders (and connections within folders) in their alphabetical order.

2. I will forward this request to our development.

Let me know if you have other questions.

Thanks Conrad

In my case, the entries under the address folder do shown in alphabetical order, however, the folders themselves do not.

Hello Matthew,

Sorry for the late reply. This happened to be a bug. Now the development team has fixed it and the fix will be applied in the very next program update.

Let me know if you have other questions.
