I use the 3-panes view as my default home screen. Most of the things I add to my database come in via the inbox of my currently open database. To sort the excellent from the average I find it useful to mark the excellent pieces as flagged. To do so means that I have to show the “state” column.
That’s fine, it works well for the many items in my upper right hand pane. But in the 3-panes view when the “state” column is visible it also creates a totally unnecessary and unneeded state column in my main sidebar. There may be times when it is useful to have such a column, but most of the time it takes up extra screen real estate that I do not want to give up to this purpose.
It must surely be possible to configure the state column in the sidebar separately from the 3-panes view as a whole. Can I please request that change in the next update.
