Cross reference/Scout options do not seem to work.

I have looked through all the discussions on cross reference/scout and do not see my issue addressed. I also don't understand half of what I read here so please keep this simple.

I am using on/offpage symbols and several of the signals on this schematic have many cross references. The cross reference tool generates XREF1, 2, 3, 4 properties that are displayed on lines below the initial XREF property. I have on/offpage symbols right on top of each other so the cross reference information is written over the top of the next symbols information. It looks like hell and makes the information useless. I have tried to modify the tool settings Ignore Signals: Global <net name> (I tried Local as well), and Format Options/Reformat and Truncate to $page_num but still get the same result. How do I get this under control? I also get multiple warnings like below.

Thanks,

Bob Keller
