Cannot easily view long names in Library UI

I recently worked on a complex project that involved Library assets; some of these assets had long names, like ...

"Camtasia9UsabilityIssue-MediaBin-MultipleBinFilesSentToTimelineEqualWrongOrder"

Unlike the media bin, the only way to see a long name in the Library UI is to open the details panel, or, put the listed name in edit mode; there is no way to widen the name column field, there is no hover-over "name" popup box, there is no horizontal scroll bar

If there are a lot of Library assets with similar, long names in the asset list, working in the Library UI is brutal; finding what you want is excessively tedious

I think this should be fixed

+1 This should absolutely be something that gets fixed.

At least at a minimum a hover popup.

Makes me glad I haven't run into that problem.I didn't realize that road block was built into the Library.

I vote yes to correcting that discrepancy.

+1 For me too.
The hover is OK if added to the Library.
I would Prefer an Option to have Word-Wrap for the Name in both the Media-Bin and the Library as an ON-or-Off  button  or Option Box to check or Uncheck.    Thanks
