Thanks for a great program!
I was wondering, when selecting a file and “right-click” and select option “Move To”, then choose a project/folder, it displays the folder/project name/title, but only parts of it… if I have a long folder name it is truncated. Is there a setting to always show the full length or could that be added in a new release?
Problem is if I e.g. use same words/numbers (in the beginning of each folder name) on a lot of folders, then I cant see which is which when I want to move the file.
I’m comparing to “Default Folder X” which always shows full name of every (nested) folder

Hi, i’ve read the article but feels something else might be the case here, it’s not that long folder name, perhaps using special characters like a star (?) is the problem
How it looks like in DT3 beta 2
Actual (indexed) folder name on disk:
If trying to save a file to that folder using “Default Folder X” instead of DT3:
A quick addon to my own reply,
Here is a full paste of folders in DT3 below the highlighted one, many of which have similar folder names but dont use stars in the name (regular characters incl ‘+’ and ‘_’) …
It’s intentional that too long names are truncated to avoid bloated menus but the next beta will slightly revise this.
