Because of smaller resolutions that the sidebar isnt opened fully by default
and in a maximized view on a tablet (as that is the only way an app can be),
the user has the option to open the sidebar fully or not.

Two-page view is incorrectly labelled when it actually is automatic view. In
Book view, it does not behave this way.

Well bug reports are intended to address one problem and solve it, so if you
have additional issues you want to address, then they would need to be in
different bug reports. If you want to brainstorm an idea, redmine would be good
for that.
