Size of layer name window


When drawing, I always keep Object Info and Resource Browser opened, since I constantly use them, they are docked on the right side of the screen. This makes the top bars narrower, and so in the bar with X,Y,A,L,classes, layers and zoom the windows get narrower.

As a result, I loose the ability to tell the layer name, since I have a whole bunch of layers called Mod-Floor-something or Sheet-Floor-something etc, but only Mod-Flo... truncated like that will show.

It seems that this could easily be fixed by adjusting sizes of these "windows" (all of them are now the same width), by taking little unused space from X,Y,A,L and most definitely from zoom, and giving it to layer names, so that they would show more completely? Just a little real estate re-distribution to where it is useful? Thanks.

I agree, this is a big issue for me as well. In previous version there was more control of the window sizes, took up less screen real estate when you needed to view drawing, or wider dialog boxes if you needed to see long names.

Why did Vectorworks break something that was working fine before?
