Zulip: upon zooming out, all elements are centered with a lot of wasted real estate on the left and right of the window

What went wrong?
Zooming out on the Zulip window causes all elements to bunch up in the center, creating a bunch of wasted real estate to the left and right. It’d be much better use of space for elements to be spread out and anchored to the left and right of the screen to give users more space with the elements (sidebars and center chat window).
Steps to repro:

  1. Click on View > Zoom Out or cmd + - (ctrl + - on Windows) to zoom out.


  • Left and right side bars anchored to their respective sides instead of the window being centered.
