Layer name display need improvement (fix tooltip please)

Post by Soom » 08 Apr 2019, 16:56

hi,
Right now, if a layer is collapsed, and it's name is a bit too long, there is no way I can see the full name.
Neither there is a way to expand the layer names area.
I would expect that a Tooltip would display a full name when hovering with the mouse, but alas - there is a little oversight which causes a tooltip to display exactly the same truncated name as on the timeline.
You can see in the screenshot.
When working on multilayered files, it is sometimes very hard to find the desired layer. I use Sven's command Layer Finder, but it's not the same, when I am looking directly on the timeline.
This has to be fixed. Thanks!
