Is there a way to set the font size for the file

browser as well.
Is this TextMate 1.x? If so:
defaults write com.macromates.textmate OakProjectDrawerFontSize -int 15
And when deep in a folder structure it becomes hard to
navigate as the file browser just "compresses" file and folder names. Things get
cool names like "e…p" (ext_localconf.php) or simply just disappear. I know I can
work against this by making the file browser wider but when it already occupies half of
your screen it gets amusing.
The problem with introducing horizontal scroll is that the virtual size has to be set to
some fixed value¹. Since there is only a single column in the browser, I find a fixed
width less desirable than the current situation, and for 2.o we allow descending into
folders so you don’t get all this indent from the parent folders.
¹ At least w/o subclassing the table view and changing performance characteristics by
having to query all table cells for size regularly.
