Problem controlling layout of Manipulate-generated GUI

For example:

 With[{value = a}, 
  Plot[Sin[value x], {x, 0, 10},
       ImageSize -> Small,
       PlotLegends -> "AllExpressions"]
 {a, 1, 2}, 
 ControlPlacement -> Left]

Below I show two snapshots of the same GUI, for two different positions of the slider.

Ip6T8 Problem controlling layout of Manipulate generated GUI

I have two (simple?) questions regarding this example:

  1. How can I center the slider vertically (while still keeping it to the left of the plot)?

  2. How can I keep the width of the GUI fixed, irrespective of the width of the legend’s text (while still keeping the legend to the right of the plot)?

Let’s block ads! (Why?)
