Hi All,

Excel is mostly great, but equally has some annoying features even after all these years !!!

One thing that winds me up is that I need to 'Manage Rules' in conditional formats.
The pop up box is piddly (small) and I would like to expand it lengthways (ie left/right) so that I can read the rule, before selecting it to be edited.
OK, I can hover over the rule to see the full rule, but that is tiresome due to the sheer number of conditional formats I have to administer.

So, why can this box not be enlarged, unlike other popup boxes in excel ?
Is there a way I can open said pop up box using VBA, whereby I can also specify the dimensions it should have ?

Any help greatly appreciated, as always.
