Default sidebar width

gavinbx 4 years ago updated by Vlad R 3 years ago 7

Is it possible to set  the default width size for the left sidebar? Would be nice to have this option in settings.

What would be the benefit for it?

If you mean Right Scroll Bar I would find this a great benefit.

Some of our users have very high resolution monitors and the scroll bar is extremely hard to find and use being so thin.  Being able to make it thicker would be very nice.  I'm guessing you can already do this globally by editing some CSS file ?? (but per user would be much better)

If you have more than 3 level of sub-folder or long file name folder, you will need to adjust the left sidebar every time login to show the full file name. I can not find a single CSS element that control the sidebar width, it is controlled by the JavaScript.

I don't use right sidebar but I can see it is make sense and it is convenient when you have HiDPI monitor and do not want to adjust it every time.

Meus usuários também acham muito difícil navegar porque temos até 5 níveis de subpastas.


I agree it would be useful with persistent sidebar width. I have a very deep folder structure, and each time I login, I need to re-adjust the sidebar width. Perhaps better than having it as an option, you could use Javascript localStorage to store the users current sidebar width (after resizing it), and then use that value on init to set the sidebar width to what it was set to last?


We'll make it remember the resized width, with the next FileRun update.


The change is included in the now available FileRun software update (https://docs.filerun.com/updating).
