Better UI suggestions

Inside "develop" menu, when we are editing an API, we have too many things that we touch only once and are blocking the view most of the time.

The "Form" and "Source" buttons could be placed on the bloc above it. Why blocking 100 pixels of height for nothing ?

When we are on the "Gateway" tab, using "Policies", we are not using the left menu AT ALL. It takes 20% of the screen, and is constantly blocking the view. Once again, it is really frustrating. Nobody at IBM used the tool ? When can't we reduce this menu with a simple button ?

By making space in the interface you could have on one side the policies blocks, and the other the policies that you are editing. As for now, since the majority of the screen is blocked for no reason at all, when you are editing something you never see it entirely. For gatewayscripts it is a pain that should not be allowed for a paid product. And you are now seeing only 20% of your policies on the screen...

Please hire a UI/UX engineer. It would only take few days to make the community happy. And please your own products more often. These issues are so basic that it's embarrassing to see for a company with such history as IBM. I truly feels nobody actually used IBM API Connect when developing it.

    Also, when you are on this menu, you need to scroll down every single time. The menu is longer than my 1920*1080 display. Please make it adapt to the size of your screen.

    Having to scroll down between the page, and the policy opened is really frustating to do 100 times a day
