Single player layout change.

I have been using Doom Explorer for about a week now, and most of my time has been organizing my WAD collection and re-experiencing some old WADs in single player.

I realized I would personally prefer it to be laid out more like the Multiplayer screen.  The Saved configurations pane is too small to read the Names of some of my servers.  The inability to stretch it horizontally makes it impossible to fix this.  It would be awesome if I could stretch it vertically, to accommodate more of my configurations (73 so far!).

The left pane would be better suited as a small toolbar.  One laid out almost the same as it is would be fine, but if it were turned into a horizontal toolbar all the same info could be provided, but there would be TONS of space for saved configurations. Maybe then there could even be a "Description" section.  That would be nice.  I thought about going even further, and having it as a pop-up Window, like you did with the server filters Window, but then I realized how aggravating that would be for people who prefer to set Doom up each time rather than save configurations like me.

Anyway - that's my two cents on the single player window.

[EDIT: I forgot.  Please add up and down buttons to sort the saved configurations order, like there is on the multiplayer screen.  I was sorting some levels chronologically, and ran into a real headache without them : ) ]

so you have long configuration names and want to see them all
ok, i'll think about resizeable control there (though there can be strings that dont fit any control..)
