Cannot view entire document title

Cannot view entire document title

New member | Level 2

My company uses a naming convention for documents that results in long filenames. When viewing files, large portions are hidden from view with only the first several characters and the final characters showing on the screen. If I hover over the title I can see the entire thing but this is tedious when scanning for a document that I want and when comparing two files with similar names.

I've found that shrinking (zooming out) on my screen allows for more characters but this is impractical because they become so tiny that I can't read them.

Is there a way to  adjust the view to display more characters in the filenames?

This is still a problem with Dropbox in web browsers. Generally the interface allocates only about 10-20% of the screen real estate to viewing the actual files. Ridiculous. It’s been disappointing me and many others for 3 or 4 years now. Their other interfaces are great, BUT the beauty of cloud files is to have a window into your files anywhere. If you’re on a shared computer? Sorry, you only get a peephole. I think I’ll post this to the other threads on this topic, just to keep it on the radar for the developers (haha).
