Bug Description

I use the all-in-one edit metadata screen and the file area is very small. The book cover takes up nearly all the right side with the files limited to a little area underneath.
Can this be expanded please? Screenshot is attached.
Thank you.

@kovid: although I don't see from the screen capture why the OP needs more space, the other work I have done makes it easy to add a splitter between the cover box and the formats box.

I have just updated to calibre 5.36 on Windows 11 and can now resize the comments area of the all-in-one edit metadata screen. The cover and file areas are still fixed.
When there are more than two or three files attached to a record it's can be hard to scroll through them, which is why I would like the change.
My apologies if this is still a work in progress.
As always, thank you for an incredible program.
