New webmail how to get rid of the preview pane

  • Hi,

    The first thing I turn off in any email client/webmail when I get a new install is the preview pane.

    I like preview panes that can be turned off globally so I don't have to go into each folder in turn and change the view settings. Still I can live with preview panes that have to be turned off on a folder by folder basis. Annoying but I can eventually get the interface I want.

    I am now struggling with the new Vivaldi webmail interface. The preview pane takes up almost half the available space on my screen. This is pointless as I have emails configured open in new tabs which is how it worked in the previous version of Vivaldi webmail.

    Can someone tell me how I can turn off the preview pane in all folders in the new upgraded Vivaldi webmail. I cannot drag the divider between message list and preview pane such that the preview pane disappears. I cannot find anything in settings that allows even removal of the preview pane on a folder by folder basis.

    According to this page the first option under Settings --> Mailbox view is
    "Show preview pane
    This shows or hides the Preview Pane in the mail view."

    This option seems to be missing from Vivaldi's implementation. Could you add it please?

    My browser/system Chromium Version 80.0.3987.87 (Official Build) Built on Ubuntu , running on Ubuntu 16.04 (32-bit)

    Thanks in advance

  • @syklist Choose a different "Interface skin" seems to be the solution.

    Now I need to find a way to change the colours of the alternative interface skin...
