Stupid, but very annoying bug...
I accidentally doubleclicked at the top of this column and resize it to the 'monster' size. This column contains some long text strings. Now I cannot anyhow drag the right side of the column with mouse and resize it back.
And I have to see both Text and Control next columns. But I cannot see the border between them. Column's width prevails, even if I open IS again. The same in all my projects... Can anybody help me?

If nothing else, perhaps you can delete the registry data that saves the column width: in HKCU\SOFTWARE\InstallShield\11.0\Professional\IDE\Workspaces\DirectEditor, rename (just to be safe) the "Control" value (the table name) to "Control-old", and then reopen InstallShield. The column widths should be reset to default values.
