Up to ST8 now, and still can't change the size of the "Links" window, even though it shows full file path names that are ALWAYS BIGGER THAN THE WINDOW.
Feels like 10 years since this has been an issue..
I am prepared for people to tell me 'there is actually no need for it to be bigger', and 'nobody has asked for that before..'
Yes, it has been a gripe for a very long time, and is why we prefer to use the "Tree View" instead.....it's far easier to navigate.

There are a number of dialog windows that are fixed width like the links one. You have to wonder when the 21st century will arrive where the developers live.
All I can say is that being an occasional programmer myself, I know it is not easy to change dialog boxes like this as you are usually pulling out one control and putting in another that has different input/output parameters requiring far more programming than sometimes what it's worth. Kind of like changing out a gasoline engine for a diesel engine in an automobile, it's not just the engine that has to change...
@pmckay I also thought this might be easy to do, so last week after I read your post I emailed the development manager. He said that this dialog and a few others were implemented using Windows API vs. (MFC - Microsoft Foundation Class) and unfortunately "these are not easy to modify and would require significant work".
I was hoping for better news too.
This is pretty high on the to-do list, and we hope to get to it soon. Log an Enhancement Request (ER) if you have not already. ERs help push items higher up in the list.
