Figma layers panel - Compact Layers Mode

Hi, Does anyone else think that nested layers take up way too much width in the sidebar?

When working on laptop with limited screen space, nested layers start getting unusable once they go past 4-5 levels deep. You either expand the side panel and lose ‘design’ space or use ‘Interface scale’ = reduced UI readability IMO.

Suggested solution > Compact Layers Mode
Provide an option to disable the ‘margin-right: 8px’ on the nested indents.

Disabling 1x CSS element gives you a lot more room:

Hey @Mark_Cracknell thanks for the feedback on this. I’ve gone ahead and merged it into the main “share an idea” post. I love the idea of a compact mode as an alternate solution. :blush:
