Status bar filename: too few characters

Post by phaolo »

Could you please extend the filename's maximum characters in the status bar?
It's always limited to like 40 even if there's plenty of space on modern displays.

It would be useful when scrolling pics in browsing mode with thumbnails.
(I know there are other modes and views, but they're different usage cases)

Umm.. I didn't find such entry in the config file (v1.6.4).
I tried adding maxCharsFilename=100 under [Browser], but nothing changed.

Cool, it still works for both modes. Thanks!
(but please, add it also to the UI options at some point)
