How to make the default ACT layouts wider

Hi,

 

I've got very wide monitors and naturally want to use the screen real estate to the maximum.

 

I'm trying to make the default ACT layouts wider.

So I go into Modify Layout and try to do this...

 

But I cannot select the default Green background to make that wider so that the controls can be positions appropriately.

 

I've got the Properties WIndow open and (for the Basic Contact Layout) have selected the 'PanelDetail (Panel)' component, but there are no drag handles to make it wider nor any property for the width.

 

Can someone please point me in the right direction here as to how to make the container wider please

The first window that opens in Layout Designer has grab handles. (At least it does on my system Smiley Wink

 

Alternatively, select Layout (Form) from the Properties Window (F4) which allows you to edit the size of the screen layout in pixels.

Aha - so it does - thanks, perfect

Also easy to find this again by selecting "Layout (Form)" - just didn't know which one to pick - great
