Grabbable Resize on Sidebar Should Be Wider

This is a minor suggestion, but if easy to implement, it would improve the usability.

The grabbable edge of the sidebar is only one pixel wide, which sometimes makes it less easy to grab. I'd recommend 3-5 pixels wide, as is the border of normal windows. You don't necessarily have to change the visible border, but doing that will make it clear that the size can be adjusted.

    Hi xxtemp,
    There is a grabbable area at the bottom of the sidebar. (two verticle lines)

    Good point, but if I can grab it anywhere (which is what I usually do) I'd
    like it to be more easily grabbable.

    Hi xxtemp,
    Hopefully the MD developers will implement some of the suggestions put forth to reduce the overall width required of the side bar so that resizing it will become something that's done once and forgotten.

    We are working on ways to improve the sidebar, including removing icons and permitting more flexible display options. The sidebar is a great tool, and we've also discovered a lot about how people use the sidebar since releasing Moneydance 2010, and there will certainly be refinements in future builds and versions of Moneydance.
