Now that there's actually a bit of breathing room in the CC interface (yay!), the checkbox and up/down arrow columns can end up taking more room than they need. See screenshots. Would be nice to tighten them down so they're consistent regardless of the width of the center column.

(In [28242]) Don't let "Order" columns take up any more space than they need to. Fixes #9183

Also, the spacing between those arrows was off, due to some mark-up differences, so made those uniform.

I think this could have been accomplished alternatively by removing the style="width: 100%;" from that table, but it seems that the style attribute is coming from somewhere deep in some other part of our code, and I didn't want to inadvertently ruin something else while fixing this ticket.

I'm not seeing the fix for the checkbox column, just for the ordering buttons.

I indeed forgot the checkbox column, but I can't find anything in collection_panel.pt generating those cells, so handing this one to Cameron, who can either fix it by making a new class for those checkbox <td>s (with width: 1% set for that class in ploneCustom.css) or by removing the style="width: 100%" generated for that table (wherever that is generated).

I would recommend the former, since, as you said, that 100% is pretty deep.

(In [28354]) fix #9183: set narrow width column class on checkbox columns on folder listing tables in general and for collection composer use that class to make the column collapse.

Both checkboxes and ordering buttons are suddenly concerned about space efficiency.
