More compact display for new HTTP editor

EmmaJ | Last updated: Sep 04, 2020 09:20AM UTC

I like the changes in the new HTTP editor, but it would be really nice if there was an option to make the new UI elements a little more compact. In repeater, you now have: The Send/Cancel/Target bar The icons to change the view type (which I think used to be in a menu?) The Request/Response bar The Raw/Headers/Hex/etc bar The Pretty/Raw/Render/newline/Actions bar All before you get to the actual content (see screenshot below) https://i.imgur.com/uWyQr7W.png When you're testing on a 4k screen this is fine - but if you're stuck on something smaller like a laptop screen, this takes up a significant amount of real estate. Perhaps the Request/Response and view type icons could be combined into a single row, or the new pretty/raw icons combined with the search bar at the bottom or something, so they don't take up as much vertical space on the screen?

Hi Emma, Thanks for the request. We are working on a feature that should address this. This will ensure that the entire message editor is more compact - especially for the Repeater.
