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.
