I develop under WIn10. Like Bob, I tend to type in numbers for column 
width rather than use the arrow, but I just created a new stack in 
LC905rc1, added a new DataGrid, created 2 columns and tried to resize 
the first column using the property inspector arrows. For Width, 
MinWidth and MaxWidth I could size upa nd down using the arrows without 
it continuing once I released the mouse.

I did see a bug when editing column names. Add a column. Type in the 
Column name. The click on the Column label field of the PI and types a 
label. Press tab, get an error "object does not have that property" and 
the Col # name references as the object. I think the closeField handler 
in the PI for the column name is broken.

I report the bug I found to the Quality Center as
