Securities Detail View table default column widths hide data

The default column widths on some columns in the table in the Securities Detail View can be too small to fit the data and there doesn't seem to be a way to resize the columns.

In my case, the "Shares" and "Price" columns are often too small while the "Action" and "C" columns are way oversized.

I'm using Moneydance 2019.3 (1880) on Windows 10 with the font sizing in moneydance set to default. I have a 4k display with windows 10's custom scaling factor set to 325%

    Hi magellan,

    Thank you for the screenshot and the details of your computing environment.

    This one is an easy one...

    Despite the fact that your mouse cursor will NOT turn into the familiar double-facing arrow, you should hover your cursor over the dividing line in the header row, hold the left mouse button and drag the divider to the desired width.

    Moneydance will remember the setting going forward.

    It has always escaped me what the default width of the 'C' column is all about.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. That was easy.

    Even without the cursor change on hovering, I did briefly try clicking on the edge of the column header but my positioning wasn't precise enough and I gave up too quickly.
