Why can't the Project Wide look up window in the Insert/Edit Child Component tab be re-sized?
This is very annoying when the descriptions gain some length, as in the attached image...
This is in autoCAD E 2012. Maybe it is fixed in 2014?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm sorry to say that this hasn't been fixed in 2014 either.
And I belive it's quite a job to make this dialog resizeable as well, so don't get your hopes too hig for any newer release.
So, maybe this is a good time to swap the DESC1 & DESC 3-lines, so that the unique information is listed first in this dialog ?
But i totally agree with you... It shouldn't have to be like that (Fra Lippo Lippi !)
Just had to whine a bit about it...
You are totally right about swapping DESC1 and DESC3, but still...
Sorry to hear it's not been fixed in 2014 either.
Thank you for your reply and awesome link
Just what I needed on a Friday.
Find file wdsym.dcl; I found it on this path C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2014\Acade\Support\en-US
Make a backup copy of this file e.g. wdsym_original.dcl.
Open wdsym.dcl in Notepad. In this file find row proj_comp_lst : dialog
That is definition of the dialog box.
49 rows below you should find following row:
key="cn_lst";width=95;height=20;allow_accept=true;tabs="2 28 39 60"; // 21-May-02 adjusted tabs
Increase width from 95 to e.g. 200 and save the file.
You can also increase height, or experiment with other elements of the dialog, but be sure that you saved a backup copy of the file.
So is the reason it would be hard to make it sizeable because that dialog is done in Diesel rather than .NET or something else more modern?
DCL is dialog box definition for LISP.
