OK. That works. But I keep having to reset it. What do I have to do to keep the setting at "false"?

It worked beautifully but I had to close the document and reopen for it to take effect.

Sorry for the top post...

Use Tools -> Options -> Advanced  "Open Expert Configuration"

Search for "minimumwidth"

Click the "Edit" button to directly toggle  'MinimumWidth' boolean value from  "true" to "false"

OK out to apply.

The Sidebar Deck can now be dragged as narrow as needed before it will collapse to show just the deck TAB Bar

How do I shrink the styles sidebar? Zoom works lovely on the main window--I used "optimal" most of the time, but that doesn't help if I can't shrink the styles sidebar.

I can drag to make it bigger but not to make it smaller than a certain size. And I can't find anywhere to change the font size. So, for example, if I need to shrink the entire Writer window down to share screen space I end up with the styles sidebar taking up half the window with large type even when the main doc window type is so small it's hardly readable.

There must be some way to do this. I just can't find it.
