Bug Description

When a column is narrow, the title doesn't fit.

My own solution to this was to create a duplicate composite column with the full title for the Details View (e.g. I have a "Percent Read" that pulls from "%" in my screenshot), but that can result in a lot of duplicate columns.

Would be a lot easier if I could just have one column and then hide the header text when it doesn't fit. Have the title appear in the tooltip.

Alternately: Have a "short name" for the column header and a "full name" for book details window. This sounds like a lot more work though.

Thank you.

I dont follow, how would hiding the header text help? If the space
is too small and you cant read the header anyway, what difference would
hiding it make?

Mostly just to make it look a bit tidier in general.

Another alternative would be just to show the first letter.
