Hello,  on my RHEL 3 system it is the CTRL + "Middle" Button that does
this function. this is on 6.0u3 as well.

Subject: [GE users] Do we still Ctrl Mouse2 to resize fields in qmon?

Using 6.0u3 I was trying to resize some columns in qmon so I could see
entire que instances to know which node jobs were running on without
having to resort to using qstat in another window. 

I tried unsuccessfully to resize the columns or to maximize the window
or to resize the window with drag along borders. 

I read in our archives back in the 2002-2004 timeframe that there was a
secret: hold down/click: Ctrl Mouse2 on the invisible vertical bar
between two fields to resize but not save them. Even then, it looked
like the rightmost field that I wanted to resize might not be able to be

Is this trick still used? I tried all Shift and/or Ctrl + Mouse button
combinations I could think of on and all around the buttons and the
columns and between the columns without success. There was a little
green line mentioned, but I never saw it.
