Is it just me that feels the changes to assertion tab is just bad and not user friendly at all

So with 3.6 came some UI changes and sometimes i just wonder how people think when changing something.

Now after the changes this assertion tab takes up about 25-30% of the of the application space and where i normally have one or two assertions like SLA and HTTP STATUS means 80% of the allocated assertion tab space is always empty

This means that 20% of my screen is just empty space and there is no fast like double click to minimize or a button to minimize this so instead  i have to over and over again drag the tab to minimize the view so that i can actually see the request and/or payload where 90% of my work is done.

Is it just me that have issues with this or does everyone else love this change?

Picture below on how it looks for me by default

    I agree. I always like to have my log tab open as well, which leaves me with even less screen size for the actual request and response windows.

    I had the same feeling when a previous UI change moved the "Send" request button to the right side of the screen. I feel that's too far out of the way of normal test case creation and not user friendly. 



    I would love to see improvements on the actual assertions default naming upon creation. Now when we create for instance a "Valid http status code check" we do not see WHAT is actually expected. I always update the assertions name to include then for instance "= 200".

    Or for a "Match content of [xyz]" assertion I would prefer it mentions the actual REST payload path and the expected result. Example: "Match content of $['abc']['xyz'] with ${#TestCase#yourExpectedResult}". That makes it a lot more clear what is exactly tested in the assertions.
