[Bug][Feature] Eliminate horizontal scrolling in File explorer


[x] iOS
[ ] Android

Please, eliminate horizontal scrolling in File explorer (here is a video of the issue).

Here are the possible options:

  • introduce a preference to disable horizontal scrolling in File explorer
  • introduce an option to create short versions of the long notes names to fit in the available horizontal space, so scrolling is not needed
  • lock the scrolling to vertical and horizontal (not the diagonal one)

Your opinion?


I find that this problem is exceedingly annoying. I think scrolling should just be locked to either horizontal or vertical would be the best option.

I’ve created a CSS snippet to work around this issue until it is fixed with a setting:

.nav-folder.mod-root {
  overflow-x: hidden;

.nav-file-title, .nav-folder-title {
  width: 100%;
  padding-right: 0;

.nav-file-title-content, .nav-folder-title-content {
  width: 100%;
  overflow-x: hidden;
  text-overflow: ellipsis;

Thanks, this works perfectly for me on Windows, and even fixes this problem in plugins that I use.
