ACS Run SQL Scripts needs a scalable dialog box (open file)

Referring to the Run SQL Scripts application within ACS. Selecting File, Open, then PC file to open a saved SQL statement, the rendering of the Open dialog box is terrible. See attached image.

  1. One third of the dialog box is completely unused

  2. The column sizing does not allow enough room for real-world file and folder name, date modified, etc.

Each column must be resized in the dialog box EVERY time it is opened.

This is unacceptable behavior for a modern application.

    This particular aspect is annoying but frankly, the whole interface is awful. The capabilities added in recent years are wonderful - but the look and feel remains that of a poorly designed app from the 1990s.
