Full Version: Long folder names issue
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Hello everyone.
I am new to Kodi, I've installed 18.1 x64 version, played around a bit, customized interface to my needs etc.
I have noticed that there's limit in length of folder names which is present in Confuence as well but it is better there (longer name and 3 dots at the end).

Here are screenshots so easier to understand what this is about.

is there any way to make this look like in Confuence? Currently it is cut directly through one letter. Confused

I would suggest you take a read on this article.

It will require a modification of the skin.  It's been on my list to track down to fix in my mod, but I haven't made time to do it.  Unfortunately that means I can't tell you exactly which XML file you need to modify to fix this.

Thanks a lot. Blush  Looking forward to fixing this "bug" or whatever. I am ok if it looks same as in Confuence skin but perfect would be, if possible, scrolling of names like file names are being scrolled already.
I see a lot of xml files, hard to track that for a newbie like me.

I'm not sure how I can use Artist Information Folder, nor that I actually need that. Confused
