Frustrating to work production in Lightroom when:

1. Left panel has a finite width. Cant expand to read the collection. This needs to allow unlimited expansion (Not that I would need to expand all the way). Working production with catalogs with the same preface is impossible without stopping to right click to see the what it is.

2. Left panel needs to use the same edit as the right panel. Double click to open the text and edit. Left panel currently forces you to hove and right click. Kills the fingers and speed that is needed in production.

This is the maximum expansion.

If you're on a Mac, hold down the Opt key while dragging the edge to make it wider than standard.

Slick, that works. Thanks!   (Be easier if you didnt have to use the option, right click is the default and just let it fly!)
