Is there a technical configuration option to make a form, i.e. order line entry, wider? There is a lot of scree estate wasted and the line items are getting really short for longer product names.

One Simple Way is To add a Div to your whole Form view. For Eg:

let this be a form view..

<form string="Export Data" version="7.0" >
*** form Contents***

you could add a Div as shown below

 <form string="Export Data" version="7.0" >
      <div style="width: 300px;">

        *** form Contents***


After this restart the server and view your form view. U will see the difference. Then change the value from 300px to some 1500px and restart the server and view the form again. And See the differnce

NB: After making changes in the xml you also need to upgrade the module.
