Get Info window too short to display all its moduls

I recently noticed that a PF Get Info window was 'missing' some items. Searching here, I found the "Window->Modules" fix. However, after adding a couple of items, I could not actually see them all! Grabbing the top window 'frame' did allow increasing the height of the window, but only if at least one of the items was open. Same problem for the bottom 'frame'.

Even after figuring out how to enable the height changing capability, I could still not make the window tall enough to see the partially hidden items at the bottom.

The solution that has worked is to use the Terminal, default write commands given in another "Get Info" problem thread. As noted, the following Terminal scripts should only be done AFTER quitting Pathfinder:

defaults delete com.cocoatech.PathFinder PFInfoInspectorIdentifier defaults read com.cocoatech.PathFinder

    It appears to me that there is a problem with the PFInfoInspectorIdentifier plist or part of it, anyway. The Terminal "fix" has been given as the "answer" in all the following threads as well as this one:
