Coming back to this...
This might be a limitation with WXWidgets (Jamie, is it really WXWidgets that is at fault?). I'm interested in this as we fixed dialog centering problem a few weeks ago.

I don't think anyone ever said this was a limitation in wxWidgets. As far as I know, it's never been investigated.

@Gids, I assume you mean the tree should be scrollable/resizable, not the whole dialog? Is it even possible to resize dialogs?

@feerrenrut, would you like to give sighted assistance to do this for #588, or does #6332 block this?

#6332 was a general issue to make sure that dilogs in nvda can be resized (if it is appropriate). If its necessary to do that for this issue, or for #588 I'm happy to help with doing that. Also happy to visually review a PR to ensure that the changes are visually acceptable.

#6332 doesn't have a particularly high priority, and isn't one of our projects at the moment, so is unlikely to get done any time soon.

I think this issue (#946) could possibly be closed. On next, the elements list (within the dialog) displays scroll bars correctly. The dialog, however, is not resizeable, which might be helpful, but no information is hidden in the current implementation and making it resizable would be covered by #6332.
