Seems something changed with the last update because I find that some layer names and GTV names are truncated. I have widened out the display area so there seems to be enough real estate to show the longer names but there must be a setting I am not remembering to allow the letters to all show (see below).

Do you have Classic Labels checked on the Menus tab of the Preferences dialog?

Both Classic Labels and Classic Buttons were unchecked as defaults in my computer. I checked Classic Labels and the truncated letters noted previously did not change. I unchecked Classic Labels and checked Classic Buttons and that then showed the full length of text in the layer names or GTV views. I will keep that checked, for now, so that I can see all of the characters in label and GTV names until the next update.
