Troublesome boxes

When I am in my Contact Detail view, in both the contact name field as well as the Company field, there are boxes to the right, with three dots inside the boxes.  Those boxes truncate/shorten the length of those two fields and obstruct my view of the text inside those fields.  What are the boxes there for and can I get rid of them somehow?  Alternatively, is there a way to make the fields larger?  Grateful for any help.

Contact field, parse control for the contact name. Company Field. link and create company record. No they cant be removed. Edit the layout.

Re: Troublesome boxes

Thanks.  But two questions: (1)  How do I edit the layout?  And (2) What specifically do I want to do as far as the editing goes?  For example, do I want to make longer (or wider) fields for Contact Name and Company?

You can check the ACT! Help but frankly you need some serious training. I suggest that you contact an ACT! Certified Consultant to see what classes are available.
