Is visually ugly customer. Is there any way to put another font or size of font to display the entire label, because I hjave some space in screen to display it. (you can see in the previous link).

Hi Daniel,

Apparently, there's an existing bug report which is related to your concern here:
- Long custom field names are truncated in the View Issue Screen

However, it looks like there's a workaround suggested in one of the comment in the bug report, hence can you kindly try to apply it and see if it helps?

I hope that this will help!


Thanks Ahmad! :)
