Rearrange / Declutter UI

This is my simplified proposal: move all the menus all the way to the left, save the rest of all that space for map and token interaction. The night mode button is especially annoying the way it just looms there, when you only need to press it maybe once. Who changes light/dark modes constantly for it to be necessary there? It might as well be in the Settings menu. Also, I don't use dark mode because Pathfinder sheets/chat look like s**t when it's turned on. I only ever use the zoom functionality when I want to restore zoom levels to the increments of 10 (i.e. if I want 100%). Simple: make the mouse scroll zoom also work in increments of 10, no need for the menu at all. Or, at least let us be able to hide it. As for the bottom player names... I get that some people use the video functionality, but it would be nice for us who use discord instead to be able just to hide the names altogether. Or to have them smaller and all the way to the bottom, if for nothing else but to show who's connected in the game, that's all it does for me, and takes up a large portion of the screen for no good reason.
For people with smaller resolution this won't work...

That's why I'm suggesting making it possible to customize these features. The functionality remains the same, it is only the placement that would change.
You meant like have all the UI be in "frames" that can be moves around, resized and locked into position while still maintaining the mouse over drop down lists?

Or just have a few pre-determined 'workspace' versions/themes and let the users choose between them. And let me turn off the buttons which I never use, like that Dark Mode button.

They are working (have been for some time) on a UI overhaul, but I don't think we have been given much info on what the update might look like.&nbsp; I'm not sure if there have been any more recent statements, but here is one from the summer: <a href="https://app.roll20.net/forum/permalink/10932147/" rel="nofollow">https://app.roll20.net/forum/permalink/10932147/</a>

But yeah, it has become quiet on this front... a little too quiet...

Or maybe the VTTES browser plugin might let us do this for ourselves? Justas Dabrila , if you're out there reading, perhaps you may want to consider this feature? Anyway my vote is given.
