Not currently planned

    Hi everyone, 
    Thank you for the suggestion - this is not something we are currently working on.

    This does not mean this is a bad suggestion or that it will never be adressed, but in an effort of transparency we want you to know that we are not currently allocating resources to solving this issue.

    We will revisit the status of this thread if and when it changes.

    I completely agree.

    It would be nice if the Auto Size option actually meant that the tool adjusted itself to the content.

    Thomas, that was exactly my thought at first. Actually the pinned area behaves like this.

    If I could have it all, I would actually like both: full Auto size and fully manual and step less sizing.
    Why? You might be in a situation, where you want to work on two tools you would like at a certain size. Filter and Library come to mind, for some housekeeping tasks.

    It might be a bit disadvantageous, if for instance the Library tool constantly resizes while you open and close folder trees.

    I hope that makes sense! :)

    It does. And you're right that tools resizing every time the content changes wouldn't necessarily be ideal.

    I agree.  All size options offered, even Auto, never truly adjust correctly as-is.  Would rather have the ability to manually set sizes

    Yep, tools size definitely needs an improvement, it's either too small or wastes space, nothing suitable in between.

    Just crashed into this and came here to make the same suggestion - the random "Auto" size is quite maddening.

    I'd find it rather tiresome to have to choose between lots of different sizes all the time. Some tools would need constant adjusting, for instance as you added more layers. I just wish the Auto sizing worked better!

    For me, Auto, mostly never works for me, too.

    Sounds like there may be a quorum here for creating a collective specification of how things should work - perhaps, specifically, what the Auto size should do.

    I just tried doing with export recipes, as five top most used fit within the view, but the bottom one is slightly going outside and sometimes I end up "scrolling down" just by clicking on it. Expanding the tool few pixels down would eliminate this accidental UI glitch.

    If only the world used one screensize and resolution this entire subject could be greatly simplified.

    Also one font size and a single common language.
