for some reason, you cannot resize the box of a wb table. it decides by itself how wide it should be.

this is problematic in a number of ways:
-long table names make the table very wide, wasting valuable space
-column definitions that are long *relatively* to the table name, are truncated.
-even if you set the options/diagram/Trim% options, the names are still sometimes truncated, and sometimes bleed over the table box

How to repeat:
see attached screenshot and model

Suggested fix:
Please allow the user to resize the table box (and relationship labels). This is really all it takes.
