When I embed a document inside another using Inset>Object>Create from file, the file is shown with the full path underneath, truncated by the available space so it invariably looks awful.

Is there another method that avoids this and just shows the filename?

I believe you can right click the object, select Packager Shell Object Object, then Convert.

Context menu

Click Change Icon then edit the caption to whatever you want to be displayed.
