Lower zone concept only useful on higher res monitors

The lower zone concept means that I am left with a letter box of viewing on my project on my 1680x1050 monitors. Its just not useable. I’ve had to turn it off where possible in editors.

In preferences editors you can switch it so they always open in a window.

It’s definitely cramped but workable by disabling some bars and using low vertical zoom. For widescreen displays it would make more sense if the split was vertical, and the project was seen on the left and the editor zones on the right.

Ah…this way is much better.

exactly what I wanted

I havent found it useful in workflow terms. I’ve already disabled it. I dont understand where the incentive for this came from whilst leaving Pro features lacking still
