The initial width of the left panel sould be 250px. But a changed width will be saved to a cookie. So if you restart your browser you will get your last defined width.

One thing you can try is to define a minimum width for the left panel. The code for this is:

#splitter #splitter-sidebar {  

   min-width: 300px;  


So that code should be added to, e.g., the Stylesheet of the space or to the global stylesheet. To me it seems that the first "#splitter" is not needed in the code.

But how to make the following CSS work? It seems to me that it works but after 0.1 seconds the width is reseted to some default (that depends on the contents of the left panel).

 #splitter-sidebar {  

   width: 300px;
