Select Symbol dialog isnt wide enough
« on: November 25, 2017, 02:03:56 pm »
Using latest SE - when I right click on source code and select 'Go to definition of ..." SE brings up the 'Select Symbol' dialog.  New to this latest version of SE, the dialog isnt wide enough to show complete name/file/line on a single line, and manual resize only keeps the dialog at larger width for single instance.  Next time this is repeated the Select Symbol dialog is too small again.

It never used to work like this, previous version retained manual resize.  Please please please restore that behavior, it is very irritating to have to either 1) struggle to find the correct symbol or 2) resize the window EACH TIME I want to go to a symbol definition.

+1  I see same problem, and it causes the text in this dialog to be very difficult to read quickly (file pathname wraps, etc...)...

( I have examples where the symbol can be selected from a dozen or so choices )

I too would like the Select Symbol dialog to remember the size I set it to.


I'm running SE 22.0.0.9 with hotfix 11.

This is also on my list of things to look into.  The dialog tries to size itself dynamically to it's contents, but obviously something has gone awry.

This will be fixed in the next rev of the hot fix as well as in 22.0.1.

Note that while this dialog allows you to adjust its size and column widths while the dialog is displayed, each time it comes up it dynamically sizes itself to the items in the list.

As long as it resizes without automatically wrapping on the name and/or path columns.
