in our project we have a lot of statuses in the workflow. This results in a big number of columns (1) in the workflow administration screen.

While this works acceptable, there is one side effect constantly leading to a loss of overview during editing. For seeing the higher columns it is required to scroll (2). This leads the vertical legend to flow out of the screen (3).

The attached screenshot hightlighths the mentioned numbers 1-3.

Would it be possible to make the vertical legend fixed, so that it is visible everytime?

Kind regards,

This issue is addressed by a recently published plugin:


If any of the upstream Redmine developer could review this, it might be a good candidate for inclusion in the official tree.

By applying the attached patch, the header of the large table in the workflow is fixed and easy to see.
It is a simple change that uses a CSS property position: sticky and does not require JavaScript.

It works fine with Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Edge.
In IE11, the header is not fixed because position: sticky; cannot be used, but it will be displayed in almost the same way as before the change.
