Re size Xlist Dialog Box

We have a client with unusually long file names, so when I do a xl the only thing legible is the xref name, the layer name is cut off

I'm sure others have had this prob, but I didn't see any search results with this issue

If there is not an existing answer, pls don't go to any trouble, I've been doing a ncopy then finding layer   :uglystupid2:

There is also the -XLIST command so the result will placed on the command line.

XLISP is just a lisp from the EXPRESS TOOLS, so you can edit it so XLIST does the same as -XLIST :
Code: [Select]
(defun c:xlist ( / kUseDialog )
  (setq kUseDialog nil)
  (xlist kUseDialog)
)

Another option is to edit the width in the dialog file ( xlist.dcl )

Here is an old one I wrote when I didn't like what 'xlist' returned.  I still use it.
