The functionality behind the labels is really awesome, especially what is exposed through their “Long Mode”. As I’ve been working on a very tiny screen (240px wide) with file paths, I’ve discovered I’d really like a “DOT” mode that truncates leaving the end.

This would work very well for things (like file paths) where the end of the string is the most interesting part.

A true “path” mode that instead truncates from the middle of the string (So you end up with “My string is … and that’s all folks!”, instead of ellipsis at the beginning or end) would be awesome too, though I suspect that may be less trivial.



I like the idea. We are discussing the new features of v8 and this also can be taken into consideration.

I’ve added this to the ROADMAP.

Wonderful! Thanks for the reply; I’m glad you enjoy the idea!
