With today's wide screen monitors it would make a lot of sense to allow the user to put the thumbnails to the left or right side instead of the bottom. It's OK if this would result in two rows of tools on one side. E.g. from left to right the development module would look like this:
first thumbnails, then navigator toolbar, then work area, then adjustments toolbar
This would result in a more square shaped work area on the screen, which is especially useful for pictures with portrait orientation.

I could see that being useful! In the meantime, try turning on the second window - set that to grid view and put it down the side, and resize the main window to be a more square shaped work area.

Thank you for the tip, this workaround didn't come to my mind :)
