Thanks for reading and I am not sure this is even possible but figured this would be the place to go for an answer. I have many doc names that are fairly long and Leopard does: filename ... -file.doc
Basically I would really like it to show the entire name. And no I cannot shorten the names work uses long file names.

Thanks!!

In list view you can drag name bar to the left to get it to dhow more of the name
In column view you can drag dividers at the bottom of the divide to extend any columns width

Thanks for the workaround. I was hoping to keep everything in icon view but this works.
