Resizing or hiding the sidebar


#1

Many of our users complain about the the side (where you can see the section tree for example).
they complain that it uses to much space, especially in the new 3 pan view.

the yould prefer to minimize or even hide the bar, and making the 3 pan view a 2 pan view :smile:

Is there a way to minimize the sidebar to smaller width than currently ?

Dear spacefrog,

You can try the ui script below:


name: Hide pass & next
description: Hide the pass & next button, 1.1 hide start timer too, 1.2 hide sidebar
author: Alston
version: 1.2
includes: ^runs/view
excludes:

css:
a#addResultAndNext{
display: none;
}

a#startTimer {
display:none;
}

a.link-noline.button.button-droppie.button-left.dropdownLink {
display:none;
}

div#sidebar {
display:none;
}

Hi Alston,

thanx for that - working great.
Do you see a way (like a new “custom button”) so that each user can decide whether he wants to see the sidebar or not (rather than switching it off for all users).

…I know…demanding a lot…feeling guilty

Hello Cyrus,

Thanks for your posting! Hiding the sidebar is currently not available as a built-in feature. It would be possible to implement this via a UI script and we are also happy to look into this for a future version.

Cheers,
Tobias

Would also like to have that feature because of the new 3 span view.
