Please tell to the developers that the size of the number in the "Total of the column" by default is smaller than the numbers of the colums. See the image attached. This problem appeared since the launch of the Yellowfin 7.0 and it was never corrected.

I know that we can change, but "by default" is necessary to keep all the numbers in the same size as it was in the old Yellowfin versions. Is not make sense?

Hi Arthur,

Thanks for submitting this to us. Just as a heads-up, I'm going to be converting this ticket to an Idea so that t can be examined by our product team.

In my opinion, I think that the current behavior is more of a feature than a bug. I presume that this change was made in order to visually emphasize the difference between 'real' data values and the 'not-part-of-the-original-dataset' total. However, I can understand that use case for wanting to be able to set the default format for such totals, so I'll leave this Idea up for others to vote on.

Hopefully this all makes sense, let me know if you have any questions!




Hi Arthur,

Yup I can confirm this was done on purpose, and the idea was for people to focus on the actual data, then look at the total 2nd.

If you need to change the emphasis on the total , then yes you can manually go in and change font settings.


Note on this, there is a current defect (#YFN-6556) which stops the font size from applying, though it will be fixed in a future release.

Sorry as I'm sure this is not the news you wanted to hear, it's one of those things that some people prefer it one way, while others prefer it another way.

If we do get a lot of requests to have the total to be in a larger font size, then we can revisit, but at this point in time, it's not something we plan on changing.

Please let us know if there was anything else you were after in the meantime.
