(ID and) Folder path take up a disproportionately large part of the grid view

(ID and) Folder path take up a disproportionately large part of the grid view, reducing the uability / limiting the number of displayed fields. Better text wrap of folder path would make this much better.

    Hi John

    I've included 3 examples

    1) A grid view where folder path doesn't show at all (we would rather it was there and searchable, but at least it shows how really good formatting looks

    2) An example of an embedded grid view where the folder path is short. Again this looks good

    3) An example of a longer folder path (of which we have plenty). The folder path is not shown completely, yet still takes up a disproportionate amount of what we see. This is compunded by the poor grid view wrapping raised in another ticket (may be a Case or an RFE, I can't recall)


    The problem as I see it, is that folder paths aren't text wrapping. Introducing text wrapping for folder paths, breaking each line on a suitable '>' would I'm sure be a massive improvement, both in formatting and allowing us to see the whole folder path
