I recently emailed support about a bug where I try to reside the sidebar of the SMS message window where different contacts are grouped together, and it disappears never to be seen again.

This bug can be fixed by typing the following command in the Terminal:

defaults remove com.MrGeckosMedia.VoiceMac "NSSplitView Subview Frames SMSSplitView"

It can also be fixed by trashing the preferences, but the terminal command is a better solution because you won't lose all of your other profs.

While this does bring the sidebar back, I am still unable to resize it. It disappears evry time and I have to reapply the code in the terminal window.

The calculations I do for resizing the side bar is very complicated and it depends heavily on the fact that it's resize thing doesn't get called unless you resize the window, if the OS calls it while it's not resizing the window, it may do what you are encountering. I do not know if it is the case that it is, but that is my best idea. My operating system doesn't call it unless the window is resizing. What OS are you running?

You need to quit for it to take effect.

I ran the command then launched the program. I have quit and relaunched with no success. I then quit, reran the command, launched and no success.

killall VoiceMac
rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.MrGeckosMedia.VoiceMac.plist

Run the bold text above in terminal and it should work.
