[Archivesspace_Users_Group] FW: Small (?) annoying problem

Hello all,

I have found something that seems small. Until you are putting container and location profiles in for 160 boxes.
If you use the Manage Top Containers section and get your list of boxes, but choose to only edit only one, you have to re-search for all those boxes once the edit has been saved. My collection has 160 boxes, I find one that is on a shelf alone and choose just that one to update. Once I've saved, I cannot go backwards to my entire list, but must re-search to get it again.

My second small annoying problem is that my screen is not quite big enough vertically to see all the drop downs. I will attach an image where I tried to update a single location for a number of boxes. I only see the first two choices of the dropdown menu. I have done this enough to know to tab down once for single and twice for multiple. When I am putting in shelves, this can happen too. Say I want to put a box on shelf 6. I will be able to see 1-4 only. I use the magic tab down to guess, but sometimes it does not work and I have to re-do it several times to get the right shelf.

That was a lot of words. I am updating several hundred locations and containers, and I'm getting peeved. Also, I have been kicked out 4 times in the last 3 hours, which we haven't figured out yet. Local IT has helped me check this end and I have turned off extensions, etc. But I keep getting kicked out.
