Please allow users to widen windows listing parameters when inserting them into families, and do the same for other dialogue boxes (see below).

Alternatively display a description field for the parameter so that one may easily understand shortened parameter names.

*Arguably we should make our parameters shorter so it doesn't eat up too much real estate on the screen when editing ; )

I agree 100%, and it would be fine if Revit displayed a descriptive field so third parties may understand what the parameters refer to.
