Custom Scrollbar Width Cannot Be Saved

Issue Details

I would like to resize the width of a custom scrollbar, which is set to Strict Type Definition. 
Resizing the scrollbar width and saving the .ctl file does update the VI. However, when I save, close and reopen the VI, the scrollbar goes back to the default width. 


This is a known issue since LabVIEW 2012. The workaround is to add the following lines to the LabVIEW.ini file, which is located at C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW XXXX\LabVIEW.ini by default.
