I often want Zoom to take up half my screen. Whenever I open the chat in a meeting, instead of resizing the elements within the zoom window to create room for the chat window, the entire Zoom window resizes, adding on the width to display the chat. When I close the chat, instead of the video getting larger to fill the extra space, then entire Zoom window contracts.
How can I disable this behavior? I want the Zoom window to stay the exact same size whether I have the chat open or not.
I would also like to see this behavior change, or be given the option to change it. But I'm doubtful this will ever be addressed by Zoom. Seeing as this is an issue on Mac, and a big part of the Apple ethos is "we only offer one way to do things, learn to love it", I suspect Zoom will take the same approach.
But hey, I'd love to be proven wrong.
