I don't like how Textmate will add an ellipsis to fit the a long file name in the Project Panel. Can and how do I get it to display the file name in full and just use something like a horizontal scrollbar?

For better or worse, it appears to be an Apple design thing, and was discussed on the TextMate mailing list. However, you can make the drawer wider to fit the name in.

Thanks, but I already knew that. It's an okay way for me to display the files in the Project Pane, but I don't want that to be so wide all the time. If I had a scrollbar, I could just scroll over quickly then back again. – Jeremy Detrempe Oct 8 '10 at 21:57
