Bill,

Don't know if this helps, but when I turn in OFF, I have the same problem
that others have been reporting.

Hi Wim, Regina, et al,

I think I've made some progress on the columns not resizing problem. Try
this:

Right-click in an open area on the Windows desktop, and select "Properties".
On the Appearance tab, click the "Effects..." button.
Click the "Show window contents while dragging" checkbox.

Can you resize columns in Genbox now?
