Configure/Change the width of the issue detail panel in GreenHopper Boards

In the most recent update to Greenhopper on-demand (May 20th or so), the side-panel for issue detail on the boards has shrunk to unusable proportions - is there any way to change this?

It used to be approximately half the width of the screen, now it's stuck at 400px - am I going to have to write a browser extension to hijack this width??


Edit: This question no longer applies - the issue has been fixed.

As a tentative hack, I've created a "Stylish" (style-forcing chrome extension) script for the moment, containing just the one directive:

.ghx-detail-view {
  width: 700px !important;


UPDATE: I also removed some of the padding between properties in the issue detail panel, and published this to a Stylish script on


UPDATE 2: This script *no longer makes any sense* - the issue Jay Rogers linked to has been addressed, the detail panel is now resizable.

Hello Tao!

It's on the backlog here: (we had to break some of the stories across releases)

Thanks, voted. This is definitely the way I think it should work long-term, but FYI the recent change of fixing the width (rather than having it be dynamic as before, with a fixed proportion) was definitely a step backwards, forcing stupid hacks like the one I listed above.
