Vertical Split Screen Option
A vertical split screen, as opposed to the current horizontal split screen, would better utilize the computer monitor's screen space. I could scroll through my list on the left, while easily viewing the order or title information on the right. Currently, I have barely enough room on the screen to view two titles on the top split and still see the order/title information on the bottom split.
With the recent release of the new checkout experience, we are excited to announce that we will now begin scoping out and implementing a new search browsing experience. This new experience will make much better use of screen real estate and allow you to browse titles in a much more user-friendly manner. We have designed and tested the new concept and received lots of positive feedback from our users.
This will be a large project and will likely take 5+ months to build. I will keep you posted as we reach milestones.
Definitely a change that would make a difference!. I can only see half of a title at a time on the upper screen as I always have to adjust the lower screen in order to create an order because I have high prescription glasses and I need to zoom in when using the browser - it's certainly not great!

Gmail, Outlook, and even my ancient Yahoo email account -- All offer vertical split screens for easy viewing. I know they are email accounts, but the same principle applies where you have a list of "something" to sort through and you want to be able to clearly view all the information on an individual basis to the side of the list.
This is a topic the product team has discussed on a regular basis so I'm glad you brought it up here!
I agree that the screen can sometimes get crowded and limit the total number of titles you can see at once. Do you have an example of a similar product where the vertical layout has worked well for you? Would you be open to other layout approaches beyond the vertical layout?
