ProE Parameter UI column width

so all, everytime I go into the UI for Parameters in Wildfire 2
(multiple builds) the column widths are not a width that is usable to
read the description and things, so I need to stretch the columns out
everytime, any know of a hidden file or config to allow me to set
these items?
thanks

Last I checked, there is no fix for wildfire 2. I was told it was a known problem and would be addressed in wirefire 3. Don't know if they fixed it not.

The problem is Pro/TABLE which everything uses for tabular, columnar presentation. It was shit from day one, not even a respectable amateur job, just baby shit and included ZERO functionality for interface configruation or the saving of same. The other problem is Pro/E's general Unix roots. Awkwardness in the saving of ANY configuration settings is commonplace and requires insider knowledge on special settings files and procedures for creating, saving and opening them. The lack of configurable settings here is joined by MANY other such deficiencies throughout the program.
As to fixing such deficiencies, PTC has indicated its lack of interest in said by letting them linger for 15 years and, in the meanwhile, devoting resources to buying little profit centers and customer bases like Mathcad and AborText while never even acknowledging that such trashiness, in an otherwise high class program, exists and ought to be removed. BTW, this "new" parameters user interface is PTC's version of a fix, but it is so typically half-assed and trashy that it accomplishes nothing to overcome the real, underlying, fundemental deficiency. Way to go, PTC! Shot youselves in the foot again, another mark of the brain-dead corporate traditionalist. Or maybe they're just waiting for somebody else to come up with the solution so they can buy them out.
