There is a very trivial issue about the Projects List screen (which is otherwise brilliant!) that really irritates me. It only appears to happen when you have a screen/window that is wide enough for it to automatically show the left hand navigation panel/Menu. If you click the Burger button to hide this left hand menu and then, sooner or later, hit Refresh, the screen forgets that you have hidden it and it comes back, so you have to to hide it again. I did say it was trivial! However it's not quite as simple as that, as there have been times when I have been really pleased to see this has been fixed, but then when i look at a different screen or something it really annoyingly comes back. I have tried for ages to try to find the trigger that makes it remember, but I haven't had any luck. If it could just remember your preference for seeing or not seeing the left hand menu and check it every time, that would be lovely.

Still on a screen/window wide enough to automatically show the left hand menu. If you hit the Burger button to hide this menu on the left it disappears correctly, and the data above and below the column headers slide into the left hand side nicely but the column headers themselves remain as they were, out of sync with the columns. Though it does, slightly bizarrely, add correct but blank column headers to the left! Hence the need to refresh, but then of course, as described above, the Left hand screen comes back again meaning you have to hide it again .... .... Aargh! Did I mention that it irritated me? Obviously I occasionally refresh the screen just to update the stats too.

And finally, staying on the Project List page, there is a tinier and more trivial issue with column headers if your screen/window is narrow enough that you have a left/right scroll bar. If you use that scroll bar you will see the column heads stay still and therefore don't marry up with the columns, until you scroll up/down, when it makes an attempt to rectify it, not always getting it right. This is pretty much the same problem as above but I thought it worth mentioning in the context of a narrower screen. This one doesn't irritate me at all

Cheers and thanks as ever for the great work.

Surprised that so many people have read this but not a single response. Maybe it just happens on my PC.
Anyway, I thought I would report that I have a workaround. If you are running Google Chrome on a screen at 1920x1024 then Zooming in to 150% automatically parks the left hand menu of options and all screens are full width with correct column heads. Not what I wanted really but I'll take it.
