Isn't is better to be able to just open your logbook and look at it?

Your logbook is a search. Literally, the exact same code that runs a search for all of your boxes is the same code that runs your online logbook. The only difference was that in your logbook, it didn't group multiple boxes from the same series into a single listing and it didn't put a limit on the number of matching results.

To me, it sounds like you're arguing that the back side of a coin is better than the front side of the coin. Maybe you're right.... but it's still the same coin.

This update is about keeping AQ running fast. It's why I added limits to regular searches years ago, and it's why I've had to add limits to the logbook searches.

With your 13,000+ finds, your logbook would have taken over 10 seconds to load a page. Did you not notice that? Then if you wanted to switch to page 2 of the search results, it would take another 10+ seconds to load. Just to scroll through your entire logbook, one page at time, would have taken--at an absolute minimum--a whopping 1,300+ seconds. Over 20 minutes!

So no, I think a search is better if you're looking for a specific box. As it is now, you can scroll through your entire logbook, one year at a time, in a mere 3 seconds. That's what this update did--it made it possible for you to scroll through your entire finds list in your logbook in 3 seconds (if you can click that fast) rather than over 20 minutes.

If it's a specific box that you recorded recently, you can still use your logbook to look up the newest finds. If it's such an old find that you don't remember exactly what year you found it, I'd recommend the advanced search page. It still would likely be faster than scrolling through your logbook until you manged to hit upon the right page.

On my iPhone. The bottom menu bar resized to width of message texts or vice versa. Now in horizontal mode they are the same but in vertical mode I have to scroll to the right end of the menus bar to use this buttons

Is this still happening? If so, what browser are you using?

I'm still having trouble reproducing the problem. What kind of device are you using and exactly what version of Chrome are you using? (I'm currently testing with version 73.0 and it seems to work fine.)

I'm not sure what to tell you. It's like you're describing my own system and I still can't recreate the problem that you're describing. You're sure you hit the "update page" button after changing to the single-column page layout?

Judging from pervious discussions, lot of us are waiting to hear about this.
