Hello. I want to make a proposal to improve the workspace.

Two panels on the sides ruthlessly select the workspace of the document, on the margins of which there may be a mass of some layout elements. And constantly moving the document to find the desired item is not very convenient.

Of course, you can close the Resources panel, which is very necessary for work. But each time it is extremely inconvenient to open it through a double menu! It’s scary to think about it ... This panel is needed almost all the time, but it takes up a lot of space, especially for small monitors.

But this issue would be resolved by placing a narrow panel, tied to the right edge (as in InDesign), and whose windows would close automatically after clicking on the field ...

By no means do I urge you to copy Indesign, but this function is very convenient to use !!! Perhaps you implement it in some way, I don’t know. But the fact that this will make it easier for everyone to work in your amazing program is for sure!

Thank!

You can already rearrange them and move them all to one side or the other.

You can also hide all of the panels temporarily by pressing the tab key on the keyboard then press it again to bring them back.

You also could try the "Separated Mode" which gives more flexibility for individual arrangement of panels, tool- and context-bar and document windows. This mode also allows to place panels below or above the document window, not besides only.

Your settings in "Separate Mode" will be auto-saved as an additionally app-preference besides your existing non-separate setting. So it enables you to switch between both of your custom arrangements.
