this request is for the ability to 'pin' a column's width, so when selecting the option to 'auto size in all columns' a specific column could remain at a fixed width, while all others are auto sized.

this applies to the 'tracks' view or any view using detail columns.

+1. Not necessarily need to copy Foobar Columns UI, but its concept can be used for reference.

Columns can be weighted so that they are responsive to UI container width:



Or they can have a zero weight which means fixed width:



But indeed there are corner cases which need to be ironed out, such as when sum of width of fixed columns alone already exceeds windows width, etc.

a very over-engineered example of column pinning, expanding, auto-sizing, etc is in a file explorer program called directory opus.  it has a system for this that could be as granular as desired.

here is a link to the online documentation for that feature, its also a great program for anyone into file organization
