It really seems like a step in the wrong direction to have huge unnecessary banners that affect all of the program buttons and lists. Like even if I make the window smaller, the banner INSISTS on staying the same exact size and just pushes all the useful stuff like button names and table headers out of existence. Why??
Instead it should be the other way around. All of the useful stuff on the left should stay persistent while the banner on the right is the element that either disappears or shows up depending on the size of the window (see attached files).
