Hello Tom I am using the "hide other pane" button to maximise the active pane, but ultimately to free screen space for the Filename in order to view very-long-filenames.ext in full. However, when I "hide other pane" all the columns stay static, so that longer file names are still not seen in full. On "hide other pane" would it be reasonable/feasible to dynamically resize the first column/Filename so that the edge of the last column borders the right-hand pane edge? Then on "show other pane" the the first column/Filename width would be restored.
