While working on notebooks, I frequently feel it would be nice to increase the width of the cells. The default max cell
width of ~954px seems a bit small while working on many of my notebooks on a large display. Switching to fullscreen is typically overkill. I haven’t figured out a way to override it within a notebook. Occasionally, I’ll resort to hacking an increased width using Chrome’s local overrides:
I’ve increased the
--max-width-8 variable value which is applied to the
.mw8 class in Observable’s styles. Admittedly, this is a very brittle solution. However, it’s nice that it is user customizable and not sharable.
I’m wondering if there’s a better method for changing notebook max width without using fullscreen. I would understand if this is a feature that the Observable team doesn’t feel comfortable allowing users to customize at a user or notebook level.
Thanks! Big fan of Observable.
