Deep trees overflow the file explorer

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a very deep tree of folders.
  2. Expand this tree.

Expected result

The file browser becomes scrollable to allow you to interact with the depths of the tree.

Actual result

The tree overflows off the right edge of the file browser without any ability to scroll to keep it in view.

Additional information

This one is especially problematic on mobile as the file explorer can’t be changed in width beyond fullscreening it.

This is an intentional change by kepano. You are gonna need to change css to readd the bar.

CSS workaround

.nav-files-container {
  overflow-x: scroll;
.nav-file-title-content, .nav-folder-title-content {
  overflow: visible;
.nav-file-title, .nav-folder-title {
  min-width: 100%;
  width: max-content;
