Hide/Show/Compact Left Panel β€” Account/Folders Pane

In the message list/pane, there is quite a bit of excess space (when using Reading Pane mode). I would like the ability to compact the message list while in reading pane mode. Essentially, I would just like to be able to see more emails at once while in reading panel mode (the way you are able to in single panel mode). This could be accomplished either via sacrificing the message contents completely or just reducing the height of each email (or both). I believe this would be the view to use for ultimate productivity.

Also, is this something that could be accomplished with a custom theme? Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks!

Hey @IAmMateo! You should be able to do this actually if you move the divider so that the left panel is wider, like this. I think right now it switches at 550px, and we should probably just make this a preference instead.

There’s a similar issue to hide/show the left pane.

Yes! Please!! I would love to see a Hide/Show feature in the Preferences for the left panel sidebar. Most times, I have no use for it since I keep everything in my Inbox. Thanks!

If you’d like to see this, please vote for this Feature Suggestion at the top. That will influence prioritization.
