    Default Scripts installer menu has no horizontal scroll option and related issues

    1. Script Manager (install subtab) does not have a horizontal scroll bar. Furthermore, when clicking on a scripts name it automatically scrolls horizontally until the rightmost portion of it is shown. Which often hides the name and description. there is no way to scroll back to the left to see the name and description other than to close and reopen the script manager.

    2. by default the script manager window is far too small.

    3. each column tries to be equal in size even if the column is already wide enough to contain all possible contents.

    4. the box underneath showing the long description of the current script does not have text wrapping, as a result the text cuts off when it is in a long sentence, and it is also exacerbating issue number 1.

    5. It does not allow blank space to the right of the rightmost column, instead the rightmost column will always be automatically stretched to stay where it is. As a result if columns that are not the rightmost are resized it will auto resize all columns to the right of the resizing column in a messy way.

    Horizontal scroll issue (number 1):
    https://imgur.com/9Zk30tj - how it looks before any script is selected

    Column width issue (number 3):

    I would say the most urgent fix would be introducing wordwrap to the long description box. It won't solve all the above issues (especially in scripts that put fancy graphics in long description box). But it will significantly mitigate all the above issues in most scripts.
    With second place going to having a horizontal scrollbar.

    Oh, and divorcing the long description box from the columns above it. Graphical changes to the long description box should not affect the columns, and vice versa. They need to be separate elements. They also need separate horizontal scrollbars, one for the long description box and another for the columned section.

    Just another data point, but I have never seen issues 3, 4, 5, so 1 & 2 are not issues. You may need to provide some additional context...?

    I can reproduce this by enabling: Preferences > Look & Feel > Add a status line to independent windows.

    Without that enabled, everything seems to wrap fine.

    I tested it and it is indeed as you said, disabling "Preferences > Look & Feel > Add a status line to independent windows." causes it to start word wrapping correctly.
