Manage Task and Resource Role window size and capabilities

HMC GUI interface: go into users and roles
select- manage tasks and resource roles:
modify - manage resource role
you have to use the slide bar constantly to see the partition name for every server you want to add and it returns back to the left as soon as its added:
The window is fixed size and you can not resize it. The names of servers get long due to extensions on the names. When you open the resources to add to a users id you have to slide all the way to the right to see the names of the partitions. It would be nice if it allowed you to resize the smaller Available Opbects and current objects windows so you could see more of the name.
In addition the ability to perform a multiple system selection to add and delete more than one at a time would also be useful. We have to add multiple systems to a role on a regular basis and adding 15 parittions one at a time is time consuming.
