Re: Field Text Position Annoyance / Company Field

Here is a FREE addon we developed for the text box alignment in ACT!. It forces the text boxes to display the first part of the character rather than the last part when the text string is longer than the width of the text box.

 

I created this screen shot of the before and after. The text boxes whose data is longer than the text box width  do not display the left most characters of the Company or Contact fields. With Left Align for ACT! by Durkin  installed you can read any field from the left most position if the text string is longer than the text box without increasing the size of the field.

 

Its a FREE add-on.  Here is the link to the download:

Thanks for this Jim - it works just great!

By the way my message was that my 30-day trial was started (?)  - how do I activate for good? Do I need to do anthing else?

Many thanks,

James

James,

 

The splash screen should only come forward once the first time you restart ACT! after installing the addon.
