Complexity is a relative term. It depends on the context of the user and the tasks they are trying to complete using your interface. For example, the instrument panel of a Cessna 182 will look very complex to a non-pilot: Similarly, the instrument panel of a Boeing 787 will look very complex to a private pilot that has only ever flown a 182: The ...

I agree with the above - there is enough room to put both those elements on the left, provided they have adequate clear space around them. I wouldn't add a thin bar to divide them as you suggestion, as this just exacerbates the issue by adding in more elements. I'm not sure why you think having the menu hamburger on the right is awful.

Imagine reading an article, when suddenly the layout changes and the text shifts, just because your mouse wandered to the hover area. I've ...

Considering the width of your image, I assume it's a phone app, although it may also be a narrow column on a web site. In any case, you can have just a short excerpt of the content and an indication to see the rest on another screen/page, it could three dots, a link like "more content" or any other method that you like.

I've seen a very nice implementation of this idea in Adobe Lightroom and in case you don't have the app, I can try to explain it to you. Internally, we are also in the process of implementing this idea in one of our applications to make more room for the user. Below you will see the Lightroom screenshot. Look at the middle left of the screen at the ...
