Pic01: dialog Admin range names
When changing the the size of a dialog in calc - here special administration dialog of named ranges - the dialog will forget the actual size when aktivating additional options - and will be resized to a very small dialog.
Steps to reproduce:
- open a new calc-document
- create min one named cell/range (insert -> named ranges -> add)
Then open the administration Dialog (insert -> named ranges -> manage??) - see pic01 - Admin_names01.png
change size of the dialog (make it wider, resize table) - see Pic02 - resize_dialog.png
Now clic on the options (Range Options) to expand the information... dialog will automatic resized to a very small dialog...- see pic03 - back_to_roots.png
This is a behavior not exspected from a user.
Correct behavior: dialog will stay in it size!

The dialog "Manage names" is pretty unusable with this size.
I need to always resize the dialog, then resize each column and do this again each time I use it.
Can the size be remebered ?
Thanks for reporting.
See the same in 22.214.171.124.
Did not test earlier versions.
I have experienced this problem on both linux and windows.
Libreoffice version is 126.96.36.199.
Remember the Manage Names dialog size and column widths, at least while it is
open. Currently it snaps back.
1. Click on Manage Names to open the dialog.
2. Grab the bottom right corner of the frame and drag to make larger.
3. Grab the column splitter for each column and drag to make larger.
4. Click "Range Options" and the dialog snaps back to its' original size.
5. Steps 2 and 3 need to be repeated.

seems there have been some improvements starting with LO 6.3:
mange names dialog is not resizeable anymore and width has changed.
looks much better now.
is there a chance to backport this to LO 6.2 branch?
