default display changed to show more detail? - anyway to turn off/revert

Has the default display changed so that it includes some preview information?

I think that it might be related to this: on the front page I saw this, but I couldn’t see where to actually turn this off in the prefs.

Story titles now have Inline story content previews. You can also turn these off under Preferences.

Is there a way to turn this off? - on my dinky little 11 inch Mac Air this now means I can only display about half the number of stories now and for sites like Hacker News, it’s a bit of a waste of screen real estate as the ‘preview’ is just the comment links each time…

Thanks, Ace

  1. Go to Preferences (little gear below your Feeds)

  2. Click on the Feeds tab

  3. Scroll down to ‘Story Content Preview’ and check ‘Don’t show a preview, only show the story title’

So this is fixed in an upcoming update. I specifically used this feed to fix it, too. Will be launched in about a week, I’d say.

I’m referring to hiding useless content previews. If you just want to remove them entirely, that’s been launched since I introduced content previews a couple weeks ago. I’m just launching a smarter heuristic as to whether or not to show the content preview.

big thanks - (to both of you) - that helped a lot! All sorted now.

The update just shipped, so those “Comments” will no longer show even if you have previews turned on.
