iOS (iPad) : 2 column layout not working?

Hello, I updated today to 11.2.1 and although I have it set to two column layout, there is a bit of the story pane showing that I can’t get rid of. Is there a way to remove the rightmost area?

We do that intentionally to allow you to tap on the story directly and to see that it’s coming up. This way we don’t have to resize the story titles list when you choose a story.

Got it, thanks for the reply! I guess that’s just not how I ever use my story list and it feels like wasted screen real estate to me (and to me it looked like a glitch because of the lack of transition between the story list and the rightmost pane). Maybe a potential preferences item for the future?
