Please allow both sidebars to be open at same time.

On a scale of 1-10, this is probably not very important (except that for some reason it's starting to really annoy me), but --

-- is there any way it might be possible to permit the two sidebar drawers (the left side one with the file and the right side on with the editing tools and metadata) to stay open simultaneously? I totally understand that the auto-close is going to be a desirable feature for lots of people, and I'm sure I'll love it on my small laptop, but it's frustrating to have to keep clicking back and forth when I'm working on a big monitor.

Great news - you can! Go to Preferences > General > Panel Tracks and switch it to Manual.

That was amazingly simple. And now I know they're called 'panel tracks.'  It's not even 8 in the morning, and I've already learned something new today.   ;)

This was SOOOOO helpful!  Having a 4K monitor, this was driving me mad that I couldn't take advantage of all my screen resolution.
