I know this would be a very low priority. I'd rather see other things fixed first, but I did create a poll for this issue (having a tree.cfg option for the first column width).
Please vote if you like the idea!
Have a great day!
The poll is great, but you may want to create a product idea also. I think those get a quicker look from the developers.
Dale is correct, I actually just replied with the same in the poll you mentioned.
Product Ideas are routinely monitored and commented on by PTC product managers. Individual product groups analyze all customer logged ideas and then technical committees, including members of the PTC/USER group, help in prioritizing ideas.
Thanks for the insight! I'll get to it shortly.
