I am trying to add new column Window size and I can't see it in listed columns. I know that in older version it was possible to simply add new column just with right click on the row in packet details. Why it is removed now as an option?

Thank you in advance for reply

Wireshark version is 1.2.9.

version 1.2.9 on Windows? Well, that's similar to running Windwos 95 on your PC ;-) How about a more recent version of Wireshark, like 1.10.x or 1.11.x?
