Some applications get long titles in the menu and the menu currently doesn't handle those too well:

The text and the highlighting box is cut off. Could the menu be made to automatically shorten long titles? Something like

"Very long application title taking up too m...."

instead of

"Very long application title taking up too much spa[CLIP]

... and have a fixed width box (tried adding max-width in the theme, doesn't seem to work) so the two rounded corners on the right in the highlight box aren't cut off?

Weird - it should be making the menu as wide as necessary to accomodate the longest title - otherwise the menu would be constantly resizing as you change categories - but I see it's not doing that, or at least it's hitting some sort of limit.

So, it's the scrollbar that's cutting off the app title - we could maybe force extra allocation to always account for a scroll bar: Like this

If titles that long were common, having a fixed width application box would probably be the way to go, a lot of empty space in that menu :o)

Looks like it sorts it, all good!
