Contact sheet - Long filename is cut at start and end

Post by Giacomo Marchèt »

Good evening,
I find it truly exceptional both the creation of contact sheets, (under "create" label "contact sheets") and the printing of the thumbnails (under "File" - "print").
Unfortunately, if the file name is long it happens that in the contact sheets the name is cut both at the beginning and at the end (even if the minimum font size is used), while under the printing of the thumbnails the file name is intact and it is also displayed on 2 or 3 lines.
The option to enter the desired information in the "Title" window (file name, date, source folder, etc.) is also very nice. The file created here and saved as PDF is very very heavy, while in contact sheets it is light. Why ?
Is it possible to solve this problem? In other words, in the contact sheets, use the file name display on 2 or more lines as in the "print" section.

Thank you for taking the time and for your kind reply. Merci Pierre

Giacomo
