Contact sheet filename in two lines

Post by balito »

I'm creating a contact sheet with several images that have long filenames (description of themselves), which must be completely shown.
Everytime I try to create them, the filename is cut off at the end of the first line, showing "...".
Is there a way to show the filename in two or more lines underneath the image?

thanks for your answers.

Perhaps an improvement to label behavior would be to allow the user to select a "control character" that would cause XnView to wrap the filename at a specific point.

For instance, if the "control character" was defined to be "-", then the following behavior would occur:

  • This is a-very long-filename.jpg
Label display:
  • This is a
    very long

Any movement on this suggestion? When I print a contact sheet it would be nice to have the filename wrap on multiple lines to keep the long filenames from running into each other. I typically only care about the filename and it would be fine to have it wrap over several lines or just be truncated if wrapping is too difficult to accomplish.
