When the column editor comes up, it normally shows just 4 or 5 columns. I can grab the middle divider and drag down to show more columns (reducing the vertical room for the tabs below), but even then it only shows 6 columns. If I maximize the window, I can expand it to show 18 columns, but then my vertical scroll bar is on the far right of my screen and the right 2/3 of the screen are empty/wasted.
I spend a lot of time in the column editor and want to be able to better see everything. I would love to see this window improved!!
I really like the idea of moving the lower area to the right side to better make use of the screen, and allowing use of the screen's full height to see as many column from a table as possible. Another option to consider is like TOAD which has some screens with a parent/child relationship. It offers an orientation button so you can flip if the secondary area is below or to the side of the main area.
