Trello has a new feature where, to the right of all the lists, there's an "Add a list..." button-thing for quick adding of a list.

The trouble is, this creates a horizontal scroll bar on the board, which looks ugly and seems unnecessary.

Is there a way to disable or hide the "Add a list..." button?

Agree on this suggestion. As a relevant other example, the "Archive card" area appears on the bottom only when it is applicable (when moving a card). The "Add a list" area always appears and gets horizontal space even if we're perfectly happy with the current set of lists on the board. I don't think that there is a solution yet, but perhaps it could be made a board configuration setting. –  jschulenklopper Aug 5 '13 at 6:33

On solution that worked so far for me in Google Chrome was to use the AdBlock extension on the list DIV:

  • Right-click on the list's DIV
  • Select "AdBlock > Remove this"
  • Confirm the dialogs

This removes the item permanently. Since you can stil double-click on a blank area to add a list, I miss no option and have additional space.
