FilenameComponent: displaying long path strings?

I’m working with a panel of limited width and when the FilenameComponent is showing a long path the right-hand end of the string gets abbreviated to “…”
I can solve this by making the height of the component smaller but this causes the recently used file list to be rendered in a very small font to the point where I have trouble reading it easily.
Are there any easy workarounds for this?
Ideally I would like to have the option to abbreviate the left end of the file path string instead of the right.
Thanks for any comments.

Have you tried ‘long path tool’?
it’s very helpful for me.
