Lightroom Classic: Swap panels for Left-Handers

I'm a left-hander, and I find that using a Wacom tablet with Lightroom is incredibly cumbersome at times. This is due to the fact that all of the develop panels are on the right side of the screen, and accessing them with my pen means crossing my arm all the way across my body to the right so that the pen can access the sliders on the right panel. My idea is to add a "left-handed mode" that would simply swap the location of the left/right panels, making it easier to access the develop (and other currently-right-sided) panels when using a pen tablet.

Hi everyone,

Also a leftie here and I find it unbelievable to see that Adobe has not thought about such a feature swapping the panels... It becomes really difficult not to say impossible to edit photos "on the go" with a stylus.

You can now reorder the Develop module sub-panels, so why is it not possible to have the panels switch sides? I am no programmer, but I cannot see why it should be so difficult to achieve what so many other applications have allowed for years. My interest is Lightroom Classic on Windows. I put my Photoshop panels on the left side, which makes it much easier for me to use. Why not Lightroom?
