Could it be made possible to decrease the width of the Pages/Assets window on the left to increase the space of the main canvas? This would be so that each thumbnail spread would be on top of each other.

You can have the pages stacked, but the width of the panel doesn't change.

It would be good if you could reduce the width of the panels which is especially pertinent if you don't have a large screen!

You can change the width of the panel by dragging on the divider separating it from the workspace, but there is a minimum width it will not go below. That minimum is probably wider than it needs to be, so they can probably adjust that in a future beta.

An alternative that might work for you is to drag the name of one of the Studio panels to the right into the workspace until it floats, & then drag the name of the other one into the name area of the floating one, so you have a floating panel with both Studios in it. This can be positioned anywhere convenient on the screen. It will still have a minimum width, but you can double-click on the name of either Studio to 'roll up' the panel to just the name header to get it out of the way. To access it again just single-click on either name & it will expand to its previous size.

Yet another alternative is to assign a keyboard shortcut to layout > View > Studio > Show Left Studio. As shown, I use the ` key for that because it is otherwise unused & on my US English keyboards it is just below the Escape key:


This keyboard shortcut is a toggle so you can quickly hide or show everything you put in the left Studio just by tapping the key.
