FS#1410 - Can't see Layer drop down list - Property Editor > General Properties pane > Layer drop down list

Version (3.14.0) 64bit

I have become used to selecting a line or shape, looking at the Property Editor, selecting the layer list and if appropriate changing the layer.

However since at least 3.13.1 The list shown is not wide enough to read the name of the layer although the colour block can be seen.

You can make the docking area at the right a bit wider by dragging the handle with the mouse at the area indicated in red (see attachment).

Hello Andrew

Apologies for the false alert I should have expressed the issue more thoroughly and not elected to post it as a bug.

You are quite right that the window boundaries can be adjusted. All the General Properties pane elements are aligned right. This leaves a lot of white space to the left. If the elements were left aligned then the Layer list would show more for any given width of the Properties Editor window. This is true for many other elements in the General Properties pane. I'm sure there are other maximising visibility improvements that could be suggested too, like expanding the drop down width to make it as wide as the General Properties right border would allow. The menu button to the right of the Layer drop down extends to the right edge of the screen and is always visible regardless of the width of the Property Editor window.

Best Regards
