Receiving this message on a classic form layout “Too many columns for classic form. Switched layout to compact form“. More than 10 columns are there in view. please check the image for reference.
What are the column limitations in the classic view? how many columns view that we can see in the classic form?
Thanks & Regards,

Yes, the number of frozen columns is limited by design. This alert appears when the scrolling area becomes too narrow for smooth scrolling. In this case, we always recommend to switch the component to compact view. The compact view will provide better user experience in this situation.

Hi Dmytro,
why don’t you add a horizontal scrollbar (and unfreeze panes) to handle this situation? Do you mind to consider this in your roadmap  the ability to handle more number of columns?
please let me know if you have any suggestions/concerns.
Thanks & Regards,
