|Summary||0008464: Ardour does not fit full screen if path name too long|
|Description||I carefully adjusted the GUI so it fits in full-screen mode ('Maximize editor space') on my 1024x768 display. If I open a session in a deep directory (long path name), it does not fit anymore, apparently because the path name in the header line makes the window expand.|
If I reduce the path length by moving the session to a higher directory, or if I disable the path indication in the header, it fits again.
It would be useful to shorten the path indication in this case, maybe similar to the 'Track name ellipsis mode'.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
The new 'Name' entry in Ardour 6.5 for the header line is sufficient for me and is much shorter than the full path, so should not result in undue window expansion.
Implementing 'ellipis' for the path name might still be useful for other with a deep directory structure.
