Showing Layers AND Assets at the Same Time
I can't believe this suggestion doesn't already exist, but I work on a 32" or a 27" monitor all the time. I have plenty of screen real estate. Why not let me view both Assets and Layers panels at the same time?
HEAR HEAR! Us big screen users would love this feature!

I agree, I work on 3 large monitors 99% of the time, and it would be super useful to have both Layers and Assets panels exposed.
I am also in favor of making them floating windows so I can move them onto another screen if needed, or just arange them as I see fit.
Another suggestion on this topic, would be to put the buttons for Layers and Assets as tabs at the top of the panel. The bottom left is super awkward to access on a large monitor and not where I usually look for items.
For now I am just trying to make the most of the toggle hot keys

Also make the panels moveable, so we can create our own workspace much like in Photoshop.
This would increase the overview of all panels to the extent of your own will.
Alan Jones commented
I agree this is needed. And perhaps place them on the right, or make it configurable, like AI and Ps
Jeff Scott commented
Yes, please. I thought I was the only one that found it really annoying to have to switch between these two. Offer the ability to have them both open, or at least split the real estate.

I to would like to see this feature. In fact while this tool is not as heavy as PS, I would love for its own UI to have the same functionality (in regards to re-arranging panels and being able to see multiple panels on the same work-space view.
I agree that constantly having to switch between these two panels is very tiresome, not sure why Adobe doesn't see the importance of having both open at the same time. Hope to see some progress on this one to speed up my work.
This is BIG. I hate going between the two. Need to be able to get to both really fast without keystroking or clicking. Please consider this!
Switching between the Artboards and Assets panels is time-consuming – and it doesn't have to be that way. It would be great to have both panels visible at the same time (as an option on top of the current solution).
Single panel – great for smaller screens
Both panels – great for big and huge screens
Designers are in the group of computer users who are likely to work on a modern, high-quality, big, hi-res screen. I mean here 27" - 40" and 4K and up. Please give us a way of utilising the screen estate we invested in and let us make our workspace more ergonomic.

The toggle between layers and assets is so annoyingly out of the way.

Allow to open the layers panel and the symbols panel at the same time (have each of them use half of the height of the left panel area).
Smart Emovon commented
I feel the Symbol Panel should be dockable like the other panels across the Adobe family . Docking below the Artboard panel isn't a bad idea.
Reason is the workflow become easier and faster rather having to click the symbol panel everytime to apply a symbol .
This software is so very poor because of basic oversights like this. Seems like your team were so keen on creating a 'minimal' interface that they decided to deny the user basic features & customizations.
My job is to design better user experiences yet this tool is among the worst I have encountered in my professional career.
Was it not for the fact that my company now uses windows & I cant use Sketch I would have dumped this software already.

Please let this happen. I want to see both. It is so frustrating >:(
I would also like the split pannel option
Quite frustrating having to flick between Assets and Layers all the time. Having both open would be perfect!
Justin Frank commented
When you want to have open the Layers but then decide you need to see Assests it then closes the previous selected panel...this is really annoying if you want to be able to see and use both at the same time.
This feature may not be highly regarded but for me personally and maybe others having to re-open panels is tiresome and slows down my work flow would be good to lock them to the side like is all other adobe apps.

Here's an example of the split view https://xd.adobe.com/view/8c57358f-741e-414e-8781-b7fcefaeb15b/

I would like the option for a split view with these two panels. (Take up the same horizontal space as 1 panel, but split the vertical space so you can see both)
