I may as well be the first to ask – have you considered the ability to pin navigator to the right hand side of the screen or stacked above or below the right hand panel? (similar to what’s possible in adobe CC apps)
- On my wider screen (27") I have to do a lot of eye and mouse movement between the navigator and the style panel.
- I’d like to keep the navigator permanently open – I use it a lot. When open all the time on the left, it cause the preview area to feel cramped and further away from what the desktop version of the website looks like (ie. with the left hand edge of the site closest to the left edge of the browser window).
- When building complex interactions, there is a lot of switching/back and forth between the navigator and timeline – being closer to each other would make this faster and easier.
- Another example is HTML embeds – I usually have to select the embed in the navigator then go to the element settings tab – this would be quicker and easier if the panels were closer to each other.
The control for it could still be in the left hand bar without being too confusing? I imagine the UI questions are the big reason why you may have resistance to this idea generally but if you could make the UI work it would give us the most flexible and useful solution for all types of screen sizes and workflows.
The images attached show very roughly what I mean.
