Allow resizing fields (Tag, Memo/Notes, Category, Transfer) while viewing a transaction split

The tag field, as well as the transfer window, category window and Memo/notes field, are all too small when you are looking at the details of a split transaction. All of those fields need to be wider or able to be re-sized.

    I agree! I'll make a "friendly amendment" to add that it would be good if the fields in the split honored which columns are viewable or not (e.g. if a user has Tags or Memo/Notes hidden in a register, they should be hidden in the split as well). It would be best if the fields in the split followed the column order as well as width as the user has set in the register.

    The split window is a carryover from the 2010-era Quicken Essentials. I suspect it would actually require work to re-write to implement any/all of these changes. The developers have generally focused most of their efforts on adding features which are completely missing from Quicken Mac, rather than making small aesthetic and functional enhancements to features which already exist. Hopefully they'll be able to have a User Interface developer tackle this idea.
