Wouldn't it be nice if containers behaved themselves?! :)
Just kidding, mostly. I'm enjoying all of the new dashboard options we now have because of containers. But there is some seemingly erratic behavior that I would like to see fixed, or at least explained.
Here's the scenario:
I've created a dashboard with some nested containers (Figure 1)
Figure 2 shows the way the panes of interest are sized by default.
I would like to take Pane #1 and resize it from Position #1 to Position #2 as per Figure 3.
Evidence of the erratic behavior can be seen in Figure 4, why all the white space?
It seems like the outermost, vertically aligning container has been split into two containers now, Figure 5.
It seems to me, that it would make far more sense to (by default) resize the pane as per Figure 6. If I'm changing the x-axis, why is the y-axis expanding? Looks like we have some sizing dependencies that can be removed?
Also, has anyone else noticed the "Fit" menu behaving erratically in 6.0.2? I haven't tested it in 6.0.4 yet, but it seems to resize to the data contained in the pane, with no regard for the Headers, which is causing for some messy views.
Related to all of this, have you considered a "resize entire pane to data" option? So that maybe when I change my font sizes, I won't have to always manually modify the row sizes?
That, in concert with a "resize container to pane" option might give me exactly what I'm looking for in Figure 6.
