Win 7/10. MS 3.2.3.

IMV, to open and close Inspector sections, the mouse click should be on the arrow and section header only. By removing the blank space to the right from the target area, the possibility of accidental closure is reduced.


Comments

Someone last week said they couldn't close the inspector by "clicking" the x on his laptop where he touched the screen.

Indeed, I'm not sure I like the idea of deliberately making the interface harder to operate. Worth discussing on the forum to see if there is a consensus that this is desirable.

A better solution might be to make the headers full-width so the user can see exactly where the click area is. E.g.

My assumption too. Not sure how to achieve that though (after a brief look at the code). And care needs to be taken for it to work in the light and the dark theme.
