I see there is a lot of debate about the new admin area. That can be expected of course. I like the changes, apart from one thing and that is what this thread is about.
I am looking at the admin area on a large screen and am seeing 4 columns. I am using the 2 on the left, and I see 2 reserved areas on the right that I do not use. There is no way for me to make the columns I use wider, or tell WP that I have only 2 active columns.
If I decrease the width of the browser window, there is a point where I only see 3 columns, and my active columns are actually wider!
I understand the concept of making things responsive, but it looks to me that there is a flaw in how this is implemented.
It looks like WP looks at the width of the browser window and decides then how much columns are needed. I agree with some of the people on this forum that one must be able to set the number of active columns and use that as a basis for showing the admin area in a responsive way.
Right now I have columns that are really narrow, while there is a lot of unused space on the right. And there is no way to change that. Or is there, and have I just not looked hard enough?
