Hiding the toolbar on the left

0 Votes

Does anyone know if there's a way to hide the toolbar on the left in the editing screen. It's incredibly annoying when you need to have two screens open. For example - having a webpage open to reference while creating your email.  The toolbar is so big and chunky that it literally covers half the screen making it nearly impossible to edit your work.

I'm posting an example.  It would be really great if we could minimize the toolbar.

Hi @ScottM1305 what about scrolling on your window with the editor open does not accomplish this goal? How would you expect to hide this build bar?

Scrolling doesn’t help because the editing copy scrolls under/behind the tools. So you can’t see the entire text area. On a giant screen it’s usually ok because both windows are big enough. But on a standard laptop it’s so annoying. If you just give us a button to collapse the tool bar when we don’t need it. Then click the button to show the toolbar that would be great. Many programs do this. PowerPoint allows you to see your slides or hide your slides on the left side of the screen. And almost all of the Adobe products have a collapsible tools feature. You’re not using the tools all the time. Why do they have to always be there taking up screen space?
