Stack Overflow used to have 'disable responsiveness' option at the bottom of the screen, so that it was possible to get more information (i.e. the code and question) on the screen, in effect 'disabling' the right hand menu.
Is there a way to do that on Code Review? Is it a feature that will ever be introduced?
No amount of ctrl+- or ctrl+shift+= ever gets more code on the screen:- (See the following screen shots)
And slightly ridiculously:
The screen is divided (on CodeReview) into three vertical areas: Left section contains Home Public Teams, the central section the code and question and the right-hand side section what looks like 'tips'. (currently I have How to Format). With the old 'disable responsiveness', the right hand section would be 'disabled' and thus the centre vertical section would gain more width,thus there'd be more writing/code/information in that central strip. In answer to @Mast, "No that's not what I'm referring to." (not enough rep to comment)
With well formatted code it's not an issue, but sometimes program logic can be complicated and thus the indentation be large or when beginners post code sometimes their indentation can be off. There is a scroll bar at the bottom, but I use a dark mode on my browser and the scroll bar is almost invisible. Just getting more information on the screen makes reviewing folks' code much easier, and isn't that what should be being facilitated?
I have tried searching the following topics in meta:
- "automatic text sizing"
- "disable responsiveness"
- "hot network questions"
- "side menus"
- "text size codereview"
- "should font size for question text and code blocks be the same"
But I have not been able to find anything on the subject.
