I'd like to abbreviate my place list (attached) with the existing function.

and think I did the same as mentioned here:
https://www.webtrees.net/index.php/en/forum/help-for-ver-1-7-9/32743-solved-pretty-short-places-names#67749

...meaning after tons of hours correcting my places I imported my gedcom (including plac, long, lati) and it worked perfektly. :-)
All was overtaken.

Then I tried to abbreviate (Preferences/Places/Abbreviate place names) the places to the smallest unit (city or village).
Tried show first 1 and show last 1 part of a place name without success.

What am I doing wrong?

My page is coming soon: genroot.me...

The "abbreviate place names" option is only used where there isn't enough space on the screen for the full place name - e.g. on the individual lists.

There is no option to abbreviate the place names in the "show all places" screen in your screendump.
