When you use the core show channel commands, there are a times when the complete channel is not visible. Is there a better way to see all channel names without them being abbreviated?


core show channels verbose

is as verbose as it gets

That is unfortunate :frowning:

Thanks for the input!

The concise option is not deprecated or scheduled to be removed from core show channels.

Thanks for letting me know - I’ve removed the concise piece from my question.

I’m :confused:

If you use ‘concise’ then the full channel name is displayed, although it’s more difficult to read.

You mentioned that concise as phasing out is incorrect, so I edited that out of the original question. Using concise works great as the solution! Sorry for the confusion = ]

Just remembered this trick, enter

core show channel <space> <tab>

The tab will autocomplete and you can continue to enter enough characters to isolate a specific active channel which is then displayed in full.

That’s a solid tip - thank you!
