Is there a short version? / Updates

I can only talk for Primo VE. These are the changes that I think have the most effect:

Make call number more visible (example):

prm-location-items span[ng-if=”$ctrl.currLoc.location.callNumber”] {
color: #6829ff !important;
font-size: 1.3em;
margin-left: 5px;

Change the display of the facets: font not bold, show both icons.

Show that there’s a pulldown menu for the search slots before starting a search

Automatically start search after change of search slot

Set focus on search box (unfortunately broken for Mac at the moment)

Use NOT_DEFINED to hide labels that are no help for the patrons
