Description

Hi All,

No Necessary a bug but i currently use 50 VPN configurations and it is causing this dialogue to open.

Is the GUI Limit their for a reason? Should i Manage my configs in another way?

I've moved one of my less used ones out into another folder for the moment.

As a enchment request - I would find it useful if you could have a grouping of configs which within one submenu:

For Example

--- Area 1

---- Config 1
---- Config 2
---- Config 3

--- Area 2

---- Config 1
---- Config 2
---- Config 3

Would save my configs looking like the attached images!

Cheers

Joe

This is an arbitrary limitation. If you are able to recompile the GUI, configure with MAX_CONFIGS defined to a large value (see ./configure --help).

However, with too many configs, navigating the menu is going to be hard without some design changes -- either grouping of configs as you suggest or opening up a scrollable window for the configs beyond a certain number (say 10 or more) is needed. I don't know of any plans for such improvements, but patches are always welcome :)
