put the focus in the center!
As new tasks cause new blades to appear, they always appear on the right edge of the window. And often, very narrow.
Instead of putting the important thing i'm thinking about way over on the right edge, put it nearer to the center of the screen, where I naturally focus when i'm working on stuff.
I don't need to see (or focus on) the 10 steps to the left of what i'm doing, I only need to focus on the things nearest the end of the journey, so put them nearer the center, please!
We made a number of improvements over the last year which should have mitigated this. Most notably, hiding the startboard when blades are opened. Let us know if you think we’re still missing anything in this area.
um... please don't. there is a maximize button for this. you get front and center of your blade. we do need the information on blades to the left!
i do agree with tim's comment though.

Also, when you close the last (right-most) blade in a journey, the horizontal scrolling should bounce back to center on the previous blade, and *most of* the now empty space should be removed from the scrollable region.
