Right now, when you open element tools like the Style Inspector, the sidebar that opens causes the document width to change. This sometimes causes the element you're looking at to scroll out of view.

It would be nice if opening the sidebar didn't cause a reflow at all and just added a scrollbar. Barring that, scrolling the element back into view would at least be less jarring.
The problem with doing this is that this would mean that there always needs to be a horizontal scrollbar. If the content window already has a scrollbar it would be covered by the one created by the sidebar. We cannot make the content scrollbar wider because that would be covered by the sidebar.

Yes, I would say so.
