I often work with text files with very long file names, and consequently the tabs are really really wide and thus inconvenient and ugly. How do I make it so that Sublime 3 doesn't display the whole file name, but only a part of it?
Preferences -> Settings - User
"enable_tab_scrolling": false to your settings file.
Press Ctrl+S and voilà, tabs are displayed as they used to be in sublime 2.
"Enable_tab_scrolling" doesn't resolve the described problem. Honestly, I doesn't understand why another answer have so many upvotes. Nothing personal, but someone could think, that posted answer could actually resolve the problem, while it is not true.
Sorry if I sound rude, it just my lack of language skills.
It is currently impossible, even with plugins, as I know. You can rename tab name (to trim it, say, to 20 characters), but this also would rename a filename itself, sadly.
If you want to try it yourself, launch console (Ctrl+`) and then type:
view.set_name("New tab name")
