UPMan
Whats the line spacing (characters) on the Homepatrol before it wraps around to the second line at default font spacing.
Thanks
Dan

Note: When I make my favorites I like to have my tags cleaning looking.

Since the font is proportional, there is no "hard" answer. "i" and "l" are using less line space than "O" or "W" for example. On average, though, it would be about 24 characters

LOL .. I've finally found another forum member who is crazy like me with alpha tags !!
I like mine perfectly spaced and no odd wrap / break on alpha tags. Right now I've had to guess how spaces to put between word so it jumps to next line. What we need UpMan, is a "hard return" key stoke so for example if you had say, City A Fire / EMS Dispatch, as your alpha tag you could hit a hard return after City A to force the next line to read Fire / EMS Dispatch. Right now you just have to add spaces to get the tag to jump to next line to achieve this result.

Something for next firmware update maybe ? ....

I want to to clean up the entire RR database alpha tags ..
When I scan the main database rather than my favorites, some of the typos, odd alpha tags drive me nuts !

Some say I'm neurotic .. I take it as a compliment .. LOL.
Back to listening .. and updating UID alpha tags too ...

Thanks for the info. I'm not too bad when it comes to the tags but when I have something like "Transportation Dispatch Ch.1) and the ".1" starts on the second line it drives me crazy. Then I just add a few spaces between Transportation and Dispatch Ch.1 and it lines up nicely. I also find that regardless of how many spaces you add, the text will always line up with the left margin.
