Loving Notion.so - and how to tweak menu size

Huh, I see that it has been a while since I posted.  Recently my dev team started using notion.so as a wiki to build out a knowledge base around a new system implemenation, so we have a way to track schema info on tables, what stored procedures do (with links to the managed source), procedures, etc.  In short, it is an awesome tool for a team wiki, if it were cheaper we'd likely use it on a much larger scale (hint, consider a lower price to get more adoption...).

If you have not checked it out, you should, I evaluated a number of options, even considered building something, but I really didn't have time to do that.  The team is pretty unanimously enamoured with the tool.


The only complaint we have had is that the left-most menu bar is a fixed width and it is, for our use, not wide enough to discern some pages.  So I use the Chrome browser extension 'Web Override' (at weboverride.com) and use the following CSS to fix the issue.  If/as I tweak any further I'll add CSS here:

.notion-sidebar-container{width:350px !important;}
.notion-sidebar-container > div{width:350px !important;}
.notion-sidebar-container > div > div{width:350px !important;}
.notion-sidebar-container > div > div > div{width:350px !important;}
