Baforms: enlarge the «edit-dialogue»

I am referring to a previously submitted suggestion:
support.balbooa.com/forum/suggestions/16...-field-edit-dialogue

Click the [Edit] button of any field in order to open the field edit dialogue. This dialogue is pretty small. I always have to enlarge it using the [...] button at the end of the dialogue. I am a professional webmaster and I have to cope with about 80 websites. Some of these websites have a large number of forms. Some of these forms have a large number of fields. You may imagine that it is very tedious having to enlarge this dialogue a hundred of times a day. My screen is much larger and it would be very helpful for me, not be forced to resize this dialogue every single time. Or if the size could be saved somewhere in the options. I hope you have some sympathy for me ;-)

Your answer then was: «Thank you for your suggestion, I agree it makes sense! Will be added with the next update.» Unfortunately the latest update destroyed the settings suggested by you:
div.ba-modal-cp {
    height: 95vh;
}

.fields-editor-panel.ba-modal-cp {
    top: 10px;
}

Applying this code does not work any more. It seems as if some changes have been made here with the latest update. I am very grateful for the new code that I have to apply in order to make the field edit dialogue height = 95% of the screen.

Thank you and kind regards
Chris

I have to rephrase the incident. It is not that the CSS no longer works at all. But the recently installed update of the Baforms component overwrote the file administrator/components/com_baforms/assets/css/ba-admin.css and removed the CSS code I had added before. I would appreciate very much, if this improvement would find its way to the next core Version of Baforms.

After I added the CSS code back, the field edit dialogue is in fact 95% high, but the dialogue has slipped down and protrudes beyond the edge of the screen at the bottom. See screenshot.

This part of the CSS code still seems to be working:
div.ba-modal-cp {
    height: 95vh;
}

I guess that this part of the code needs some changes:
.fields-editor-panel.ba-modal-cp {
    top: 10px;
}

Thank you very much and kind regards
Chris

The ba-admin.css file will be overwritten with each update.
We will not add this to the update because not everyone is comfortable working with the same window (for this, it is possible to enlarge it).

In order not to lose the code when updating, we recommend that you add it to the code editor

It's a pity because I think «height: 95vh;» would work for any customer with any screen size. But never mind...

May I ask my second (main) question again; it may be that you have overlooked it.
