Is there a way to lock the left-most column, in Columns View, to prevent its contents from partially hiding behind the Navigation Bar?

Hello all,

I use the columns view very frequently, but one quirky aspect of it drives me bonkers. (Hoping it’s a case of operator error :slight_smile:).

While in Column view, if I select an item within the Nav bar, a column of course appears with contents.
If I then select within that column, which presents a lower-tier (new) column, and then select an item in the newest/right-most column, I then loose the ability to see the Name labels in the “left-most” column–because the labels are partially hidden behind the Nav bar. Is there a way to lock that column to prevent that from happening?


No, there isn’t a setting for this. First request I can recall actually.
Can you post a screen capture of the phenomenon?

Hi Jim,
Thanks a bunch. Very sorry for delay. Got slammed with work this past week.

This has to be something stupid I’m doing. I’m going to pay more attention to this and will let you know if I think something is wonky.

I mean, obviously, when one clicks through ten tiers of groups in a hierarchy–thereby 10 columns–the software will to exactly what we want it to do, with the width of the display (and its resolution) determining of course what we can and cannot see. Of course, the window size of DT within that space also matters.

I’ve had some instances where I seem to loose sight of the left column when I’m only drilling down a little bit—but that’s probably because of some boneheaded thing I did–a column unnecessarily too wide or whatever.

Thanks again!
