I'm loving the new threaded view, but for long threads it becomes a nuisance, since the last posts get too narrow to be read properly.
This is even more critical when the posts include pictures.
Take a look in this thread, for example: http://scn.sap.com/thread/3153376
It would be better to increase the width of the thread area, since that bar in the right (i.e., advertising) takes around 25% of the usable width.
It's not about that.
I do want the threaded view, but I just wanted the renderer to be able to smartly use the available space in my window. I get about 4 inches of empty space on each side and just around 12 inches of used space in the middle, out of which 4 are lost in the right menu bar...
Second that. Threaded view gets way too narrow when there is a long discussion. Here is another example - towards the end it shows just 2 words per line in small font.
Yes, we can switch to Flat view, but then why even offer threaded view if it's not usable?
