FEMAP resizing dialog boxes

Currently I am using FEMAP 11.3 for my models and am coming across an issue which is annoying.

 

Due to numbering directives imposed by the customer I have element and node numbers of 8 digits long. Unfortunately I am unable to see the complete width of the elements/nodes list in the dialog boxes as you can see in the attached picture. FEMAP_dialog_box.png

 

I can use the "Pick" drop down list to copy the entire element/node list and past that into notepad/excel or whatever, but I find that very cumbersome.

Therefore my question is, is there a way to resize the dialog box so the entire width of the element/node list is shown.

 

Thanks in advance.

You can quickly copy the selection list by clicking the Pick^ and then select the Copy or Copy as List menu item.

Hi Chip,

 

Thank you for the quick answer, but as I already said in my question I find that option very cumbersome because it involves pasting the data to another application.

 

I just want to see the full width of the element list on the screen in FEMAP, which requires a resize of the dialog box. Is this possible?

Unfortunately, you cannot resize this dialog box.

 

However, you can paste the list into the Messages pane and do not have to exit Femap.

Hi chip,

Thanks for the tip.
I think I will have to learn to live with this until maybe resizing these boxes is possible in a new version of FEMAP.
