Change column widths in Enterprise Guide 7.1

Hello,

 

this is a somewhat embarrassing question, but I can't change column width in EG 7.1 (this wasn't the case in EG 6) for several columns.

 

What works is: 1. select a single column (in the process flow window) > a double headed arrow appears > change the column with of a single column

2. mark several columns > right-click > use "width .. " in the menu-window > change the width of several columns

 

What doesn't work is: 3. select a couple of columns > the double-headed arrow appears > change the column width of the selected columns (pressing shift or control doesn't change anything) > only the column widht of 1 column changes

 

Please help :-) & Thanks

Ah, I see what you mean.  The data grid was re-implemented in EG 7.1.  Some new features were added (such as the Copy with Headers feature), but I guess some behaviors went away (like this one with the width).  For completeness, I'll add an animation of that too:

I'll make sure that @CaseySmith is aware that you've noticed this feature is absent.

Do you mean that you're simply changing the display width (in pixels), like this?  (See this GIF animation.)

I find that it works as expected in EG 7.11.  Is this what you're trying to do?

I like your animation a lot.

 

Yes, this is exactly what I mean. With EG 6.1 you could select multiple columns and then use the "double headed arrow-symbol with a horizontal line in the middle" to make them slimmer or broader. The curser looked like "<-||->".

 

I am aware that there is the "Width .." option, but I am used to the mouse version.

 

In EG 7.1. the cursor looks different I "<-->" am only able to change the width of a single column. (I am sorry, but I find this annoying beyond believe).
