Hi, I'm new to Musicbee and I hope this isn't something obvious or somthing that got already asked.
I used the search function and didn't find anything.

Is there a way to change the width of the left and right main panel (in the now playing panel). I display band bio and song title in those panels but they are quite small that makes it hard to read and and I have to scroll a lot.
So it would be great to make the side panels a bit wider.

Same as you would with any Windows window. Hover over the border and once you see the two-headed arrow, drag it wider or narrower.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

In every panel those arrows show up but not in the "now playing" panel. Could this be related to the skin?

EDIT: I tried several different skins, including the original one. There are no arrows (in said panel). The arrow shows up only for the right sidebar (showing the playlist).

You cannot change the width of those elements.  You can put their contents in the sidebar - using tabs or stacking if there is more than one - and then adjust the sidebar width, though.

What a pitty, the left and right panel would be a good way to use the huge space of the main panel while keeping other stuff in the sidebar.

Nevertheless I figured out that the right main panel gets wider when I make the right sidebar bigger (and the main panel smaller), On the left side this doesn't happen.

EDIT: I tried to add an image to show the change but it doesn't show up.
