Changing borders in desktop budget display

Newbe here....couldn't find a matching subject so apologize if this is redundant! That said, in the budget screen the transaction portion is roughly equal in width to the left budget portion and the right quick budget portion. I would like to shrink the left and right borders a bit so the middle is wider and more easily visible to  my old eyes.  Seems like this objective should be easy to achieve but I couldn't find a setting that addressed it. Any thoughts?

    Hello and welcome! Many things for searching before posting the question. For viewing YNAB on the computer, I added the toolkit plug in to Firefox and there might be a combination to choices that would help. There's a toolkit option to be able to resize the left portion, a few choices on fonts, and ability to make some other minor adjustments. I don't feel any single one addresses your question, but a combination of them might help.

  • Thanks! Sounds like it's worth a try! So a follow-up ?....if I make the changes in Firefox can I assume they'd be visible theeafter in Chrome?

      Aquamarine Transistor No. The Toolkit settings are specific to each browser on each computer. So for example, the Toolkit allows me to add names to the colored flags. If I do that in Firefox on my work computer, I also have to do it in Firefox on my personal computer.

      Aquamarine Transistor Please download the Toolkit for YNAB for Chrome, if that's the browser you're using. As jenmas  pointed out, the Tookit add-on is browser specific. If you do download the Toolkit you will be able both to resize the left panel (the accounts panel) and reduce the width of the right panel, by a percentage of increments. The Toolkit also offer numerous other benefits.

    • I have downloaded the YNAB Toolkit for Chrome but the option to resize the column widths is missing. Any suggestions?

    • Hi Lavender Elk !

      Have you turned that option on in your settings? After you've installed the extension, you have to click on the green plus icon that should appear in Chrome's toolbar (most likely in the far right corner), then in the popup that appears, on the green "Open Settings" button. You'll get a menu which allows you to toggle various Toolkit features on and off. Save after you're done making changes, then refresh YNAB. Most settings are off by default, since the Toolkit has a lot of options and they don't want to make it too confusing.

      Thank you Faness. Yes, I followed those instructions exactly with some of the other settings but the setting to adjust column widths I cannot find. Should I reinstall? Is it different because I am still on the YNAB trial?

    • Lavender Elk Because resizable sidebars are coming to YNAB soon, they're no longer available in the Toolkit. It'll be worth the wait, I promise!

      Define "soon."

      This is my only issue with YNAB - but it's a big one.

      Cobalt Praetorian VERY, as in some users currently have access and it is being rolled out now.

  • Hi Aquamarine Transistor !

    In the web app, you can resize columns in the account register. Click and drag the line between two column headers until you've got those columns just right. Though, it's not currently possible to resize or collapse the Accounts menu or Inspector sidebars—and it sounds like that's what you're looking for.

    If you have a moment, please let our product team know you'd like to see that in the app by submitting a  Feature Request? We appreciate you reaching out.

    For more about the Toolkit options and questions, check out the API & Integrations section!

      And all - thanks for the great suggestions, which I've begun to work with in Firefox with some success. Next stop is the same process in Chrome, my normal browser. Although I am really just trying to FIND the toolkit extension in Chrome...LOL! 

       

      I will keep y'all posted and will also follow up with a product enhancement request if appropriate!

       

      You guys are all great -. thanks very much!

      Aquamarine Transistor I have the same issue and what the suggestions are did not work for me.  I swear there used to be a resize column because on my budget screen you use to be able to shrink the "Total Budget", "Total Activity" by a percentage and now it's gone and now it's as big as day, annoying and in my way especially when working on an 11" screen.  You'd think for $83 this would work.  Hmm, maybe I don't need a budget, maybe I need an Excel Spreadsheet or another app.

    • Mr. Alex Did you use the YNAB Toolkit extension in the past by chance? Percentage may have been an option there.

      This is an older thread, but we've since added the option to customize the width of the sidebars in the web app. Check out the article for more information on how to move those around (plus new themes)!
