Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Fitting the grid to page width in a book (PAW 2.0.58) even when plan sidebar and properties are hidden


I create a book with 1 grid and with those properties :

  • Layout positioning = Relative

  • Preset = Screen 16:9

  • Fit page = Yes

When I hide the Plan sidebar and the properties bar, the grid is not fitted on all the width of the page.

I do not have any workaround for this issue except using the full screen option for the grid. In term of user experience, using this option is not answer because user must do a click for each book.

To fit the page is a very important functionality, asked so many times by our customers. If this functionality could work properly, It will be a big improvement with older version of PAW.

Many Thanks for your help.

    I'm calling this a defect and will get our QC team to reproduce and investigate. I was able to reproduce in the current release (2.0.61). However, the order of opening and closing the properties pane and plan pane seem to matter. The book (grid) should resize to fit the empty screen.
