IDE enforces minimum width

I notice XS won't go below a certain width. Sometimes (particularly given panes can't be split) I find myself wanting another window beside it. Could I request we reduce the minimum width?

    The minimum width is per item within the IDE - pads, documents, etc. The total minimum width is the sum, and depends on your layout. If you find specific cases that you think could be reduced could you please file bugs?

    Perhaps it's the top toolbar that drives the minimum then. For example, if you open a normal project (with solution explorer at the left), drag it to its narrowest, then collapse the solution panel, this does not permit you to make it any narrower. The watches panel etc at the bottom doesn't look like it's at any kind of minimum width.

    I'm not sure I could call that a bug though, given the toolbar is necessary :)
