Is it possible to change the width of columns in Kanban boards?

In Cloud, using a next-gen project as a demo. The board that's created by default is Kanban. Next-gen projects can only have three statuses: to do, in progress, and done. The board uses fixed-width columns, as far as I can tell, which means that the columns on a large monitor are very narrow, causing content to wrap, even though there's a ton of white space off to the right.

Is there any way to change the column widths, or make them responsive?

Responsive column width would be great!

Hi, is this going to be fixed/implemented, since it looks ridiculous, especially on large screens? For example on QHD resolution

I'm thinking of going back to Excel sheets.

no this cannot be done. 



Has there been any updates on this? We would like to use the Next Gen project types, but it is becoming an annoyance to have all of our issues scrunched up when there is so much space to use. It's especially bad if you have epics / labels attached to your issues, as that forces them to take up even more vertical space.

Plus one from me on this. Having set up a bunch of next gen projects after previously using classic, the narrow columns are a hit on usability.

Please make them responsive!

Please make it responsive, it is even painful to look at this :(

Yeah, this next-gen project is just a little too limited.  These non-responsive column widths are bad.

I may kill the project and go back to a non-next-gen.  I really want to add at least one state too!
