Allow horizontal resizing of the blank area left when canvas is detached.

When the canvas is detached and shuffled off to a second screen, it would be nice if you could make horizontal use of the ‘blank space’ it leaves behind, like you can in Sony Vegas etc.

At present, the Media bin and Annotation options etc on the left are locked to a narrow column that cannot be resized horizontally, so this space is effectively wasted.

Maybe even take this one step farther, and allow docking of all sections.

This is one of the "have to be done" things. Moving to C9 from C8 has reduced my usable screen real estate for tracks with about 40 %, resulting in much too much time wasted scrolling up and down, , up and down, up and down, up and down, up and ... to adjust items. Not good at all.

Hi David;

Thanks for the feature request! I brought this to the product team and their response is that maximizing the real estate within the UI is on our radar, and please stay tuned for updates or feel free to reach out to me if you have any more input on the topic.

Hi Robert, It's been two years since your remark here, when will this improvement be released?

Yeah, now that I have dual monitors I often put the canvas on the second one so that I can stretch my timeline vertically and see more tracks at once. Being able to make better use of the empty space other than just seeing "Canvas it detached" would be great. Perhaps use it for being able to see multiple panels at once (media bin, transitions, behaviors)?

Will better flexibility of window real estate, docking, etc. actually happen?
