I'm wondering if theres a way to hack the Edit Post screen to allow a 3rd (or even 4th) column, like the dashboard has.
Let me preface this, I use a 20" monitor and surf with my browser maximized.
I have no need for a 1000px+ wide text editor and would rather make it smaller and gain an extra column to organize the options better.
Ideally have 3 columns on the Edit Post screen, the first slightly larger for the body text, and two smaller ones next to it for all the options.
Has the added benefit of not having to scroll down to access all the options for a post. Plus it would help the proofreading/typing process as ideal line length is something around 12-16 words. Right now in my case it's about double that. Which makes reading and proofing a pain. I don't want to have to change my browser size just to make a post.
I'm honestly surprised this hasn't been included in the core already, it's a waste of valuable space for people with wide monitors, and has been bugging me for a long time. I don't imagine it would be hard to implement either.
I think the whole admin side should just dynamically adjust columns based on screen width so I can seamlessly go from my netbook to my desktop, with out having to change settings every time.
