Width of “bubble” showing attached files in detailed task view

I cannot begin to fathom the logic of this.

I just added a comment to a task and uploaded a file. The little white rectangle that asana uses to indicate the file is only about 80% as wide as the space allows, so I cannot read the entire file name.

Worse than that, however, the files uploaded to the prior comment appear only abou 70% as wide as the new file (or about 56% as wide as the space allows).

Unless Asana has some unimaginable reason not to want me to see the full filenames, please make those elements as wide as the space allows.

And if the file name is too long to appear in even the widest allowable box, then please make the full file name appear when we hover over it.


HI @Robert_Tolmach and thanks for the report.

This is the expected behaviour:

So sounds like there is something odd with your two first attachment.

  1. Can you confirm what browser (+ version) you’re using?
  2. Are you seeing the same issue when logging into your account from another browser?

Hi Marie
I never saw an email notifying me that you had replied to this request. Perhaps it slipped past me? Just stumbled across this.

The expected behavior you illustrate is the same as the problematic behavior I show in my screengrab: the bubbles that hold the file info are narrower than they need to be. In yours, that is fine, but in real life, I doubt that anybody has really named a filed something as short as “sign” or “user-”. File names tend to be long so they can tell anyone exactly what they are. If they are long, the file name cannot be read. Nobody needs extra grey space to the right of the file bubble. Everyone wants to read the full file name.
