Just another small thing to note with 1.14.1-dev.

My genome names are truncated when they are displayed in the top menu bar.

@srobb1 this is a little bit of a tough thing design-wise, because the genome names could potentially be very long (your aren't, but some people's could be), so there has to be a limit to how wide the menu can be. otherwise, if somebody had long names it would take up the whole top bar and squeeze out everything else.

I could look at making the maximum width of this configurable, do you think that would help?

From the release notes:

Added a datasetSelectorWidth configuration key that sets the width of the dataset
selector. The width defaults to 15em. Example setting in tracks.conf:

classicMenu = true
datasetSelectorWidth = 20em
