History tab, usability question

We are currently reviewing Act 2009 Premium for a small workgroup.


I remember from many years ago (Act 6/7? not sure) that the history tab for a contact/company gave a very nice overview of all the items. But now on the history tab every item is spreadover several lines, which makes the whole thing much less usable. What I would like, is just one line per history item, with just the field Regarding showing. But if I click on the Customize Columns option, there are only the combined field Regarding & Details and the separate Details field.


So how do I add just the field Regarding to the History tab? It must be something simple, but I can't seem to find it.


Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, their is not an option within the program to include only the Regarding column under the History tab. And, the only way to display a single line is to remove the Regarding & Details column from the tab. If you do this, you can still see the whole history entry by enabling the Preview Pane from Options.

Ironically enough a workaround is NOT to use "Regarding & Details" but only "Details" - which then only posts on one line...
