When i open or save a doc in any of the CS5 apps, for mac, in column view, the left hand column where my projects are listed is too narrow. i see 9-10 characters. can the default width be changed so that this column will always be wider when i open those dialog boxes?

What version of Mac OS X are you running? I just did a test in InDesign CS 5.5 running on Lion (Mac OS X 10.7.3). In Lion, the open dialog window is "sticky". When you drag the column widths in column view, they continue to open that way when you open them again.
