Bug Description

Only album names and artist names which are very short show up in a way that I can read them. Both in album view and artist view, there is too little space for each. It works fine for artists whose name is one or two short words, like "Bergen barokk" or Björk", but it is hard to find the right artist with names like "Orchestra of the 18th century", "Orchestra of the age of enlightenment or "Orchestra of the Golden age" when only the start of the artist name is shown ("Orchestra of..").

Same with albums. It's hard to choose the right album if I want to listen to "Bach, J.S.: Cantantas Vol. 32, BWV 11, 123, 124 & 125" when "Bach, J.S.: Cantatas Vol. 45, BWV 39, 187, 129 & 1045" and all the other Bach Collegium Japan Bach cantata albums are displayed only as "Bach, J.S.: Cantatas Vol". If I could just see a little bit more, I would be happy. Even if some albums and artists like "Björk": "Debut" has short names, many albums don't.

Hi Einar, thanks for taking the time to file this request! I've added the Design Team to this report. It might be worth exploring allowing these labels to expand to more rows when in the converged/desktop mode.
