Yesterday a new update rolled out for certain webpages including the inventory pages. For the intentory page it looks like only one thing changed, but that one change is certainly insanely annoying for me and probably also a good number of other people; The grid in which the items are displayed changed from a 6x4 grid to a 6x5 grid. Even though it’s only a small adjustment, the change has a big impact. My monitor’s resolution is 1920x1080, which is common for monitors. With that resolution the old 6x4 grid including the arrows at the bottom used to fit in my screen. Now I can’t see the whole grid at once anymore.
Notice how the top is cut off
Now if I want to look through my own or someone else’s inventory to find a certain item, I have to scroll up and down on every page. Looking for something in an inventory has always been tedious by nature, but now it’s become more clunky.
There are only two benefits I see in the new update. The number of clicks needed to look through 120 items is reduced from 5 to 4 and people with a big screen resolution now have less white space. However, the number of times you have to scroll up and down has increased from 0 times per 120 items to 4 times per 120 items for people whose monitor’s have a height of ~1000 pixels. Additionally I don’t think there are enough people with a really big resolution to justify the change.
Ultimately I wish the size of the grid would depend on the screen resolution, but changing the grid back from 6x5 to 6x4 should be more doable for now. Was there a specific reason for this change which I’m missing? If so, I’d love to know.
