    Possible to shrink a long field like "Start ...End"?

    ryanmead83

      I have a text field that shows the file name of attachments I upload.  The problem is many are .msg files from Outlook and are really long, like one I just did is around 700 characters.  So instead of it showing under a portal (example only):

       

      "Re: Here is the email that I'm attaching to FileMaker for tracking.msg"

       

      It shows:

       

      "Re: Here is the email that I'm attaching to FileMa"

       

      Which is a pain since you can't tell the file type etc (even though another field does show file type).  Just wondering is it possible to set fields to display like this instead:

       

      "Re: Here is the email that I'm attaching to ...tracking.msg"

       

      Basically using the ... to show it's longer than the field can hold the way the Finder or Windows Explorer does?  Not a huge deal just would be handy.
