Windows 7: Can CHM-based help layout be edited?

24 Jan 2017   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32-bit
Can CHM-based help layout be edited?

After years of adjusting the column width on the left side of standard help screens (index tab or search tab), it occurred to me that there might be a way to change the default widths.

Can the CHM file be edited in any way to adjust the column widths? Even a hex edit would be workable if I could just force the width of the first column ("Title"). Examples of what I have and what I want are attached.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
