How do I change the column width??? - COLUMN.JPG (0/1)

I am getting WildFire configured and I would like to change the column width, the column with the features listed. How do you change the column width for the first column, the column
with the features listed?? See attatched .jpg

It would be in the config.win file, but I am at home, so I don't know what value to enter.

No jpeg came through but I think you're talking about the Model Tree. The space for the feature name isn't separately configurable. It is simply what's left after you've added other columns to the tree with the the Settings button at the top of the tree.
If you make that whole pane wider with 'Tools>Customize Screen' and pick the Navigation Tabs page. In the section on Navigation Tabs Settings, you can adjust the width of the window. That will give the feature names more room.
If you want to radically increase the width of the Model Tree, go to the Model tree settings section, click in the Placement drop down list and pick either Above or Below graphics window. This model tree is as wide as the graphics window, separate from the Navigation tabs which gives you not only a wider Model tree but the ability to give yourself more screen room by zipping the navigation tabs into the window frame. And, eventually, we may be able to use the program full screen without having any separate windows popping on top or behind things.

Thanks David, Everything else can be customized, I am surprised that the feature column width cannot be adjusted.

Yeah, I know! Sometimes the stuff that CAN'T be cofigured is the most baffling! Then, again, I'm thinking that they want you to learn java and use jlink or c++ and pro/toolkit. But, I have no idea if these toolkits reach the stuff that's not customizable by regular means. Mysteries abound in Pro/e.

baffling!
or c++

that's not

Its easy enough to place your mouse in the tree title bar and drag the widths.

Mysteries abound in Pro/e. : : Its easy enough to place your mouse in the tree title bar and drag the : widths. : Also pretty easy to scroll the text with the scroll bar. I used to do both pretty frequently. Until I put the model tree on the bottom of the screen and it takes up the full width of the window. Now, the feature list takes up half window the other half dozen tree columns take up the rest. Neither half is crowded and the layer tree shows up, full time, in the Navigation panel so you easily have access to both without swithing. And the Model Tree stays available, no matter what you do with the Navigation pane. You can do this easily by selecting 'Tools>Customize Screen>Navigation Tabs' and picking the drop down list for Placement under 'Model Tree Settings'. Expand the list and pick Above or Below graphics window. Make sure it gets saved and you have a full time, full screen Model Tree.

'Tools>Customize
'Model
Make sure

It's all down to personal preference I suppose. I prefer to set the model tree outside the graphics window, to the right just below the menu manager, about half screen height. Then if I need to do model tree operations I simply drag it bigger or click to make it full-screen. It's more flexible than having it embedded within the graphics window.

Pro/e's happily moving away from scores of detachable windows, toward defined screen regions. In WF, no more detachable model tree. You can put it left or right or above or below the graphics window. But you'll never find it splayed intrusively across what you are working on. Meaning it's a step closer to being a full screen program.
