Hi to all,
In past versions of Lightroom, I could change the widths of all the panels by adding a single line to the "en" translated string file. But, this file is not available any more as far as I can see. Is there any other way to change the widths of all the panels in Lightroom with a single stroke?
Just drag out -
As you move your mouse left & right across the region between the two sections, you'll see your cursor change from an arrow to a double-headed icon. At that point, just mouse-down and drag left or right. This works on both the left and right side sections.
Thanks for the replies,
I want to have all the panels on all the seven tabs having equal widths.
So, it seems there is not a way any more to drag them equally like the translated strings method.
You are correct, there is limited amount of side to side movement. Having 3 equal widths was never possible.
Might you be thinking of what can be achieved in Adobe Bridge? There you can have 3 equal widths in the columns.
On Mac, you can make the panels arbitrarily wide by holding down Alt while you drag the divider. But that broke on Windows years ago. Altay is referring to a workaround where you can edit the TranslatedStrings file to override the maximum width of panels on Windows:
I just tested my LR 10.2 / Windows 10 installation, and that workaround is still working correctly. If it's not working for you, post here
1. The language in which you are running LR (Preferences > General > Language).
2. The full filepath of the TranslatedStrings file (e.g. C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Lightroom Classic\Resources\en\TranslatedStrings_Lr_en_US.txt).
3. The contents of that TranslatedStrings file.
Thanks a lot John ... worked.

I wish that were true for my me. It doesn't work on my macbook (I can only increase the panel size with option&drag), and I desperately want to decrease the panel size: https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-classic-discussions/huge-ui-side-panels-in-lightroom-classi...
Opt-drag won't make the panel any smaller than the minimum size, and that bug you referenced sets the minimum size too big. In the past I've tried hacking TranslatedStrings to make the minimum size in German and other languages smaller, without success. It's too bad the developers have labeled this "as designed".
