FM14 Way to prevent layout from stretching horizontally?

I have a list view layout in FM14 that is designed to auto-resize. I have a Description field that is anchored left and right so it stretches, all objects to right are anchored on the right so they slide right as window stretches horizontally.

 

The layout is designed to work maximized within the application window.

 

It works fine as designed, but got a request for some way to limit the width of the layout on larger monitors because it becomes too wide for the user to track visually all the way across the line.

 

My initial response was, "don't maximize the FileMaker application window on big monitors, just adjust to a width that works for the user."

 

I don't want to resize the layout window within the application window. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to limit auto-resizing to a certain width without adjusting the size of the layout window?

 

Thanks!
