Topic: how to make topic list ui wider?


view this post on Zulip pnkfelix (Dec 20 2019 at 19:34):

Some times people post follow-up topics by adding a suffix to an existing topic

however, in the zulip UI, the title of the topic is so long that the ui presenting the topic list elides the end, just putting "..."

and there is no way I can see to force a wider window for the topic list

and thus its very easy for me to accidentally click the follow-up when my intent was to click the original

Should I be filing a bug about the fact that I cannot control the width

or should I be advising zulip users to eschew making suffixes the sole differentiator between two topics?

I would eschew suffixes personally, because not everyone is going to bump things up

and generally if it's a follow-up on the same topic, then use the same thread, and if it's a different topic then there's no need to 'link back' via the name
