I suggest you ...

VB Code References Dialog Box should be sizable

If we open any VBA module (either a module or the one in code-behind-forms), one of the choices we have is pointing the Jet or Ace engine to the correct Reference Library. This dialog box is very small and should be bigger by default. Ideally it should be sizable and Access should remember the size where we left it. That would be NICE!

    As per Joes comment below, if would nice to see the full path and file name of the reference and ideally it should be something we can copy to document or use in code.

    Thanks!

    I couldn't agree MORE. The total insanity on Microsoft's non-sizable dialog boxes is maddening. Almost ALL other applications have sizable dialog boxes..

    In the meantime, the tool below ... among other things ... adds one additional line to the References dialog ... a 100% improvement :-)
    And it's free!

    I've been using this for a long time. Works in ALL versions of Access, including A2016 on Windows 10.
