  • (2018-11-26) Dan Nguyen: ctrl + S works but seems to disable word wrap. Trying to have Slack in a narrow side window but word wrap disabled defeats the purpose of hiding the side bar

  • (2018-11-07) Eirik V├ągeskar: Works okay, but the user interface should be a bit better: In addition to the Command(Ctrl)+S command, there should be some visual cue to get you started.

  • (2019-07-22, v:2.0.2) Jayson Hoogeveen: Looks like new slack has broke this
    Got a message from slack today that I now have their new version that has fully rebuilt it. https://slackhq.com/introducing-a-more-efficient-slack-desktop-experience But now this extension does not work. Hoping for a fix as I find this extension really valuable to block distractions in the sidebar. Thanks for making this!
  • (2019-05-09, v:2.0.2) Emmanuel Proulx: ETA for fix
    Do you plan fixing this extension so that it will work on win10 in Chrome? If yes, how long do you think it will take? If no, I have to find another solution.
