2 bugs

1) Cannot slide field dividers to make more room for folder and file names in dialogs of the type shown in the attached--which are not the standard Windows dialogs
2) I new SubframeSelector, if a criterion is modified for star recognition, the re-measure button just reads the cache (unless it is unchecked). I cannot conceive a case where someone would change criteria on the form not want clicking the Measure button to do the new measurements regardless of whether the cache checkbox is checked or not.

Running latest PI, Windows 10pro up to date.

Hi Alex,

The Load/Save Project commands use custom file dialogs instead of standard file dialogs on Windows. This is because bundled projects are directories that must be managed as single files, which is not supported and cannot be implemented using standard platform dialogs on Windows. See the release information for the new bundled projects feature for more information. So this is not a bug, but a design requirement. Alternatively, you can use PixInsight's File Explorer to open projects and inspect project properties.

All columns are resizable in these custom file dialogs. Are you sure you cannot resize them by clicking on the column header separators and dragging?

Yes, this makes sense. I'll see if we can improve this behavior in the next version of the SFS tool.

Maybe all I needed was a little motivation? Anyway, I double-clicked the header and a down arrow appeared in the field I clicked, and the boundaries became movable...Sorry for crying 'Wolf'!

I have another request for a future version. Some form of a Highlight/Shadow/Clarity tool...are these part of a "pyramid scheme"???
