Disable Description column auto-resize

Yes I've googled and found a zillion very long threads asking to do
this, including citations of bugs, patches, et al, most from 2010 and
earlier but none that immediately give the answer. Rather than spending
hours going through these threads, may I just please ask the experts:

"How might I disable column auto sizing, especially the Description
column that gets very wide?"


I am on v. 2.6.7 and rely on openSUSE Leap 42.1repositories for the
latest updates as well as this channel (thank you).

I've followed the various threads to widen the other columns (includung
by double clicking) in order to force Description to a smaller size,
which works, but then the entire window is too wide for the screen and
I must manually scroll horizontally. Tabbing indeed  goes to the amount
column (Withdrawal in a bank account), but it is now off the screen to
the right.

It would just be a big help if I could just say, "Mother, puleeze! I'd
rather do it myself!" 
and just manually set column widths to my liking. 

Or else, if tabbing goes to a field that is off the screen auto-scrolli
horizontally to find it.

Thanks in advance, Andy
