Description AdamMagaluk 2011-12-14 14:35:37 UTC
Not a bug but more of a feature request.

When adding a project with existing sources, in my case a autools makefile project the Projects Navigation Panel displays the full path name next the project name making an unnecessary horizontal scroll bar in the panel.

I think a) there should be a way to disable this, or b) maybe a better way of displaying the name if at all necessary. 

It wouldn't be much of an issue if when I expand another project with a long directory the horizontal scroll sets its position to the left edge of the directory opened.

Currently this node is physical folder path. And, yes, if it is too long it creates scroll which is not used at all. The question is to UX designers how this could become better. Meanwhile converting this to enhancement.
