It worked on Tribble before Season 7 came to Holodeck (now i can't turn it off on Holodeck and Tribble).
It is not the only option that can't be changed.
I can't change the reticle and most other options like reticles for enemy fighter i can only change when change them in the ui-settings.txt file and load the saved ui in-game.
Installed the game new, disabled on-demand patching, reset all to default - still no changes.
I know fleet members who have the same problem - anyone else?
