This is a wierd, non-standard behavior: when resize the MySQL Workbench windows size, the SQL Editor area has a min size greater than half of the screen (my screen size is 1920x1080). This makes it very bad if I try to put it take half of the screen (Windows Key + Left/Right arrow) - the Windows is supposed to take half of the screen, but it takes about 3/4 of the screen.

How to repeat:
Use Windows key+Left arrow, it should take half of the screen

Suggested fix:
Allow min size much smaller. In fact, why restricted it at all - if the user wants it smaller, let it do it - what hard does it cause???
