Why so small? Day to day use of WebAssist extensions

I submitted this as a feature request years ago, so was hoping with the new release of Databridge, that it might, at the very least, have been improved.

If you look at the attached screenshot, you'll see the size of window most developers will be used to working in. We're not developing on mobile phones (are we?) :S

Yet, the WA wizards are so small you end up with really unnecessary scroll bars which do nothing more than limit your productivity (see arrow on attached screenshot).

If a database table has a lot of columns, this gets really tedious in the Wizards.

Feature request (again)....could these Wizard windows be given a re-size option (bottom right) so that whatever size resolution/screen we're working with, we could adjust the Wizard accordingly?

Fingers crossed.

Unfortunately we have to develop for the users that have laptops and small screens. We can't change the ui size based on the screen resolution. There is no such thing as responsive extension commands unfortunately.

When you hover over any ‘window’ in Windows, be it File Explorer or a browser, the pointer changes to double arrows and you can resize the window or, alternatively, click on the Maximise button to make the window full screen.

My request is that the WA wizards have this functionality so that, regardless of screen size, resolution or device, you can resize the window for your needs. That way, everyone is accommodated, not just laptop and small screen users.

Just an idea, but productivity would be much better if I could widen the wizard and see all the table columns and bindings in one view without scrolling.

Fingers crossed. ;)

Unfortunately this isn’t possible in dreamweaver. We are limited by the constraints of adobe’s api.
