More appropriate column widths in "Edit drumset" dialogue

Looking at the column widths in the "Edit drumset" dialogue, it seems that

  • the "No." column is unnecessarily wide considering it at most contains a three-digit number
  • the "Name" column is the one that would benefit most from more width.

Yes, I'm not a programmer either but the change seems somewhat straightforward.

Obviously, the user can modify the width of the columns. But smarter proportions out of the box would help with usability. While I have some more involved ideas on how to improve the drumset editing dialogue to think through before I post them here, it would be neat to see this squeezed into 2.1.

Column widths are looking good!

There is an issue with sorting columns: If one orders by "No", ordering happens like this: "0, 10, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 11" instead of "0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, …" (Screenshot attached) I'm sure that is not intended. Do you want me to file a new issue?
