The box that is opened when we view properties should be large enough so that core properties -- e.g. the dataset name -- can be viewed in their entirety. I just opened up the properties for a dataset that has a 5-character LIBNAME and 32 character dataset name. The dataset name was truncated. The Properties window cannot hold long dataset names. That window should -- at a bare minimum -- be able to display a dataset name with an 8-character LIBNAME and 32-character dataset name. Ideally, the window should also be able to fully display dataset names that are longer than this because we all know that the character limits on LIBNAMEs and dataset names has to be increased in the future.
Similarly, the window that that pops up when I want to open files should BY DEFAULT reopen at the maximum width I last had to set it to in order to view my projects. Every morning I go through the same routine of having to manually expand the column that displays pathnames/project names because the default width is ridiculously slow -- as if nobody at SAS knows that most of us no longer use EG in a desktop environment anymore but rather on a networked system. With all the talk about AI it seems that it should be relatively easy to program EG so that those of us on systems with long pathnames to our projects don't have to manually expand the filename column each and every time we open an instance of EG. This may be a minor nuisance but it is one that we encounter virtually every time we open EG.
