Am I the only one who sees truncated filenames? Somehow I doubt it. As
for screen resolution, this certainly should matter, sinc it governs how
many characters one usually displays per line. I have never, to my
knowledge, clicked on an exe in TB, but will check to see if anything in
the options indicates otherwise.
Nope, nothing in the saved extensions dialog.
A couple of things did jump out as possiblities, however. I have
minimum font size set to 16, and a non-default set of fonts in use. I
also use the Skypilot theme. Perhaps some interaction between these
factors is causing trouble.
