In Wide View, also preview / display first line of a message in the message list pane
Firstly I do apologise if this is the incorrect place to make this feature request. I went to the Gnome Evolution website and they directed me here:
A little background, I have just installed Ubuntu 20.04 and am impressed. I was looking for a Personel Information Manager similar to Outlook as I don't like Thunderbird and it doesn't integrate well with the desktop in my opinion.
I was recommended to try Evolution, I have to say guys this is a first class application. Thank you all for what you have done! I have been tasked to set up a small computer lab of around 20 clients. I will be looking to use Evolution for these.
Can I just ask is there is a way that I can display the panel layout like Outlook? This for me is more logical as I have used Outlook all throughout University. As I want to lower the barrier for the students that will use Ubuntu I want the panels to look similar to outlook also. I can get an approximation if I change to the vertical allingment and then select the Wide View after.
View > Current View > For Wide View
The problem then is that the first line of the of the mail message is not displayed. Although it is much better than the default one line view. I find that in the normal vertical layout the middle panel is just too narrow to be useful.
Would it be possible to create an approximation of this layout with the three lines of text per mail message? I understand that less messages will now be displayed in the application panel so there is a trade off.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and apologies again if this is the wrong place to make this request. If you would consider this change I think it will be beneficial for many people as it is appears to be more modern and usable on widescreen displays and is more inline with web based clients.
Many thanks guys!
