User-controlled widths of PROJECT and TASK fields


For the way I deal with 'to do' lists, having the ability to control the width of todoist's PROJECT and TASK fields would be very useful.

Basically, I would prefer for the PROJECT field width to be wider. To achieve that, I could, if necessary, easily sacrifice some of the TASK field's width.

Alternatively, since there is quite a lot of 'white space' on both the extreme left and right of the screen, perhaps the current two-column format could be expanded to allow user-defined fields (i.e., at the user's option -- those content with only two columns could stay happy with those). It seems that the screen real estate could easily support four column fields.

I mentioned this problem to a friend of mine, who provided me with a solution, and allowed me to share it. Credit to Ben Maraney.

I use Firefox, and installed the Stylish plugin (which I'd considered before for other reasons). I added a new style, pasting the following code:

@-moz-document domain("todoist.com") {

body { width: 95% !important ;}
#content>table { width: 100%;}
#editor { width: 70% !important ; }

#list_holder { width: 30% !important; }
#list { width: 100% !important; }

I imagine one can tweak the numbers to suit individual preferences. Thank you Ben!
