Reproducing the Issue

Some file names are breaking line, while others are not:


This is expected behavior. In case the file name starts without dashes and/or underscores (-/_), only with spaces between each word, then the file name will be in one line, with elipse.

However, if the file name starts with dashes and/or underscores (-/_), it will automatically wrap.


File names like:

  • "Test_test_test_test_test test test test test test test test.pdf";
  • "Test-test-test-test-test test test test test test test test.pdf";
  • "Test_test_test_test_test-test-test-test-test-test-test-test.pdf";
  • "Test-test-test-test-test-test_test_test_test_test_test_test.pdf".

Will be treated as one long word, and consequently, break word style will take effect, causing them to be automatically wrapped:

If you want the display style to be in one line with eclipse, just keep the file name as following or replace (-/_) with space:

  • "Test test test test test-test-test-test-test-test-test-test.pdf";
  • "Test test test test test_test_test_test_test_test_test_test.pdf";
  • "Test test test test test test test test test test test test test.pdf";

Then, you will get a consistent style on the block:
