Show full file/folder name
I know lots of apps use the ellipsis/three dots (...) when the text reaches a character limit, but I think it's a little annoying when you have to go to the properties of the file/folder just to see it's full name. Just make a new type of view (detailed view?) or make it as an option in settings.
Thanks for the suggestion. We’ll take a look as part a future design update.
Good idea I like it

Landscape mode wastes all the screen space gained by turning the phone sideways on moving ~7 characters of info to their own columns. This makes no sense. Size and last edit date are just fine to show below the filename. Landscape view has long lines, use them to show me the complete filename.
the long file name being trimmed issue not only in Android app, Apple the same. this would be troublesome when looking for files urgently on phones.
I agree there is alot of wasted space in formatting. In landscape mode, there is a ridiculous amount of space allocated to the file date and file size columns - on my phone this is 50% of the screen width
This problem is incredibly frustrating and completely prevents me from using OneDrive. Even on landscape mode, it does not show full filenames. In landscape, it is even worse as there is lots of wasted whitespace and the filename columns shows even less information.
This is similar to a request I raised. I appreciate the ... sometimes. My suggestion though is to add a third view, in addition to the current tiles and list, that does show the full file name. Surely this should be fairly easy as a single column list!
Ok thanks for your help
Try writing a book and being unable to the see entire file name for a document. This needs to be done urgently, and it's one reason I do most of my writing in Google drive, which by the way has a nice spellchecker that actually works in Google Docs, One Drive is a clunker for word file storage.
