Wordfast Anywhere Source and Target Column Size Adjustment?

Before I open the translation, the source and target are equal in width at about half the screen but when I open a segment to translate, the source (Japanese) is about 80% of the screen width and the target (English) column where I need to type is only about 20% of the screen width and too small.

This is probably because Japanese does not have spaces, so Wordfast Anywhere is unsure where to introduce line feeds.

I am translating a Powerpoint file but I don't think that matters.
I could add Japanese commas to the segment breaks but I want to translate sentence by sentence.
