SPLIT VIEW in Project window... like in Media Browser and Premiere 6.5 (2002)

Premiere Pro's Media Browser has a Double-Column/Split view which is extremely useful. So why can't the Project window also have an option to toggle on/off Split view?

As implied by the name, Split view would split the Project window into 2 columns. In the left column, you'd have an always-visible List view of bins and sub bins. In the right column, you’d see a bin’s contents in either List or Icon view. Each column would be independently scrollable, just like in the Media Browser.

There are several benefits to this approach.

BENEFITS (see attached picture for reference):
-Lower bins don’t get pushed out of view when twirling open a bin with lots of content (see points 1 & 2).
-You get direct access to over 2X more assets using the exact same screen real-estate (points 1 & 2).
-You can use 2 view modes at the same time: List view for bins, where it makes most sense, and Icon view for media (point 3).
-When using icon view, you retain direct access to your bins (point 4).

Even Premiere 6.5 (2002) had a split view in its Project window! Why did Adobe remove this essential functionality in Premiere “Pro” 7.0?!

Adobe clearly understands the value of Split views since otherwise they wouldn't offer it in Premiere Pro's own Media Browser. It's time for Adobe to fix their 17 year old mistake and give us back Split view where it's needed the most: in the Project window!

Please comment and vote. Lets get this fixed once and for all!

That would be really helpful. Also, with 2 displays, there should be a way to extend the timeline to the number os displays connected. After Effects, back in 2011, that was so so so good.

I would use this all the time!

But even if I had no use for it, I would vote for this based on the excellent (and illustrated) explanation from the OP!

FYI, Davinci Resolve 16 already has a split view of sorts, called 'Bin List' (see picture).

Now it's your turn Adobe...

I fully agree with the author. This small change will make it easier for users to work with the program.

I have always been frustrated with bins in Icon view. I either have to have multiple tabs open or just do too much scrolling, sizing and clicking. The split view OP shows in number 3 is fantastic! I would use it all the time. I also always wondered why the Effects Panel only has a split view for Lumetri Presets. It might be silly for audio effects but Transitions would be a great start.
