We changed the design and brought the navigation into a single column for 2 main reasons:

  • it works better for zoom text users when the navigation elements that do the same/opposite things are closer to each other, and aligned in a single column because they are easier to discover
  • in the previous design, when there was anything in the side bar/3rd column the arrow was pointing directly at it, which was confusing users
