Allow more than 5 workspaces

  • @namero999 In first dev/beta version Opera with this function, we have add max 6 workspace. I don't know why we have max 5 workspace in first stable Opera with workspace. Personally, I wouldn't mind if more could be added. Anyone from the Opera could say why it was limited to 6 and later changed to 5?

    BTW. If You add more elements to the sidebar than it could contain, then You can scroll it with the mouse scroll.

  • The last update didn't increase the number of available workspaces. This is literally a constant in the code.

    Can we please have more workspaces? It's a limitation that makes a useful feature, useless.

  • Agree. Only 5 workspaces is a big limitation for this feature. Please, let user as more spaces as ones wants.

  • Unfortunately, Opera 70 doesn't increase the number of workspaces yet. I am trying to playing with the configuration file and see if it is possible to force something at this point.

  • Same here. I see it as an unnecessary limitation. Random shapes are a good idea in my opinion. But first things first, just unlock the limit for now, please. 1000 or 1024 seems good.

  • Yes - Please more than 5 workspaces. Up to 8 or 10 would be enough!
    Currently my last fifth workspaces is "Misc" which contains the missing 5-8 categories 😞

  • It would be nice to have more, although it would be mentally taxing for most people. Five categories in a given context is pretty much the capacity of human mind.

    Here are my worspaces, you might get inspired by it to find something that works for you.


  • I mean it's not mandatory to have more than 5. If you can't deal with more than 5, don't create more than 5.

    But there's no point in limiting the amount of workspaces for those, and there are many, who need more than 5....

  • @radekpilich Nice that it works for you, but some of us don't want to use it for that, but rather for switching context.

    I'm a freelancer. I'm currently working on 3, sometimes 4 projects. It helps me waste less time if I can keep my tabs between sessions of working on the same project.

    What I'd like to do:

    • One workspace for each project
    • One workspace for organizational stuff (time trackers, issue trackers, etc); or better, one for each client (currently that would be 2).
    • One for talking to and looking for prospects (or jobs; I like being a freelancer but I would be open to the right offer).

    Unrelated: seems you're using each workspace for 3 different categories? That pretty much demolishes your argument and looks confusing as heck.

  • @radekpilich

    Yeah, thank you for your answer and concerns, but what do you know about my mind capacity? As @namero999 points - limiting the amount is not a way out, nobody forces you to create more than 5 if you have problems with dealing with it.
