977: Configure Project Library Names

I have some very long path names to my module libraries. The names run over the end of the alloted space so I can't see the names of the files I've added. Am I missing some obvious way to see the names? A scroll bar appears on the bottom but moves the whole screen, not the names. Could this be changed to be more like the "Order" page where the file is displayed first followed by the path?

I have the same problem, and I don't think that the present GUI for library configuration is really good. These graphic ovals behind the library paths cover too much space, a smaller font - not bold - and a simple list would be more efficient.

Also, I haven't seen nay way to remove a module level library.

I noticed this too. It seems that with some of the jars that I add I don't get the little jar icon at the beginning or the "x" button at the end. I had to go back to the last build to edit my library files.

This seems to happen with long filenames. They just push the jar icon and
the remove button off the edge of the viewable area. Which is an absolutely
terrible design flaw in the UI. The workaround is to keep on widening the
dialog until they become viewable (which may, for a very long name, mean
that the dialog has to be wider than your screen).

Hope that helps,
Vil.
