Hello Greg,

Thank you for the swift reply as always.

That was it! There is no hint from the part of the cursor that you can actually change the size. Tested it and it works great. I also solved the mistery of the arrows not working line by line as expected. Now with the enlarged panel and without the horizontal scroll it's actually a feature as it will jump to the next "text" subcategory if there are more opened which speeds up the move from one to another.

I know about the incompatibilities in format, yet, as nothing was started there was no problem moving back and forth. Only that I feel those optical margins are a wonderful feature to have.

Wonderful! Problem solved! Thank you so much Greg!

If I catch anything which can be reproduced when it comes to crashes, I'll be back.
