    Thank you for building this IDE! I was hoping that I could give a few design ideas to make Welkin Suite for Mac work better on a smaller screen.

    I've included a screenshot of what I'm describing:

    1. There's extra chrome along the top if you're not using lightning previews.
    2. The tabs in the lightning previews for the "Component" and the files within that component are the same shape (unlike on the windows version).
    3. The file extensions aren't visible for the files within the components - making it difficult to distinguish which file is which (unlike the windows version).
    4. The Solution Explorer leaves a lot of extra white space on the left for the Solution and Project names - instead of making those "tree" levels, you could distinguish by using font size, bold, or a background color. This would leave more space for file names.
    5. File icons in the Solution Explorer are very similar no matter what the file type is. Maybe use icon colors and different shapes?
