Panel Resizing and Space Wasted on Right Panel

Hi @Abhishek Dewan,

Thanks for the reply.

Like you wrote, "adjust the columns to a certain degree", and to be more precise, I can adjust :

  • the width of the left column (using right edge) between 150px min to 260px - and I won't say no to 100 more pixels...
  • the width of the middle column (using right edge too) between 240px to 280px - and clearly, here, it's absolutely not enough and annoying.

Sure, I'll be patient :) but do you any ETA for some fixes ?

Thanks again.

Also, when editing the notes, even more space is unnecessary wasted.

The larger your screen is, the more is left unused while editing, because the textfield has a limited height. Please, let us use this space. It's why we bought the larger monitor ;)

Also, we'd really appreciate rich text options. Now it's plain text only. No headers, no bold, no lists… :(

Enpass is not a Word processor, and also probably not the best choice for a note-taking application. Demanding that the app design gets changed for this purpose is a bit silly. All in my opinion of course. When you edit a note-type entry, the edit field does extend to the bottom.

The 'wasted space' clearly has a purpose in the design of the app. People can have a use for longer field names, and that's what get shown in that column. I can understand if the developers want to keep using the same relative column widths for the layout of the notes items and the layout of the login items.

I'll grant that it's not nice to say something will get implemented and then don't do it. Maybe you can forgive the support staff in this forum for that. Anyone working in the software industry learns that it is best to never make promises about dates and features...

What you said does not make any sense. The wasted space is not at all used for any field or for longer fields. Just look at the screen dumps above. A tool should not eat up your screen with so much wasted space.

And by the way notes is one of the options of the software that does make a lot of sence to keep the save. So notes are an essential part and should work smooth as well.

You are free to make the tool fullscreen if you want but dont tell others they should see the wasted space as features. This is just ridiculoous.

@RVG It's not exactly a luxury to be able to make notes with your passwords. Every password manager I've seen so far has that option, and with good reason. People who need password managers are usually not just keeping a few personal logins. Webdesigners etc usually have hundreds of accounts to keep track off. You often need to add details about them.

• As you can see, the edit field does not extend to the bottom at all. It only goes 12 lines, no matter how many lines there really are.

• As for the 'clearly has a purpose in the design of the app'. What is the advantage of limiting the width of the column to just 25 characters? Again, we're not talking about just a few personal accounts.

And sure, we all understand that a feature request can take some time, but there have been 11 updates of Enpass since this was promised.. So please, keep your word. It's not like this is a crazy, complex encryption feature that causes a complete do-over of the app. It's GUI adjustment.

I talk about 'longer field names', not longer fields. My screenshot shows how that makes sense at my medium screen size - it's pretty obvious that what I see in your screenshot is not a good use of space, .

It also looks like there are some differences on how this works out on Mac, at least compared to my Windows screen. My items column gets to a max width of about 45 characters (for the bold item name).

I don't share your wish to use Enpass full screen on a 4K monitor, or to keep extensive notes. That doesn't make your request invalid of course.

Hi @Abhishek Dewan,

I simply would like to know if the developers roadmaps  contains something to try to fix this panel resizing issue ?

This topic was created the 9 Oct 2019 and there's no update since.

Can we just know if it's something that will be _really_ handled by the developers or.. not.

If it won't be fixed sooner or later, just make it clears so we have no expectation on this issue. ( I can understand there are others priorities - even if I don't understand why this issue can't be fixed. Maybe there's a good reason though..)

Thanks you,

Regards.

Hi @gyan000

The reason for your disappointment is certainly understandable.

This issue will be resolved, and our dedicated development team is already hard at work. For the moment, I will be unable to provide an ETA. My personal attention is being given to this concern, and if any resolution is found, I will be sure to update this forum. I appreciate your patience and cooperation while we look into this matter.
