Resizing width of DOM columns in Sierra Chart

Can one of you guys tell me how to resize the columns (make them wider) for bid/ask depth so that this doesn't happen?

Currently, you can not specify the width, as it auto sizes to the largest size. I know the 'K' items used to work, something must have changed. I would post it to support and it will get fixed. User defined widths have been asked for before, but I would ask for it again while you are at it. I would think allowing the user to specify a number of characters wide would be easy enough.

Thanks @aslan.

The 'K' doesn't save any space until it's more than 10,000 anyway

9999
9.99K

The 'K' actually takes more space.

I will forward to support.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Hello Mike,

This was resolved. We were experimenting with abbreviations but that has been removed unless the quantity is more than 10,000 and even in that case, there should now be enough width to allow for the suffix. You are on a pre-release. Please update with Help >> Download Prerelease.

There was still a width issue involving quantities greater than or equal to 10,000 and this has now been worked out in version 778.
