Workflow transitions are truncated

JIRA truncates the workflow transitions in the View screen.

In JIRA 6.1.5 there seems to be a 25 charcaters maximum, the last word is truncated with 3 tailing dots ...

I don't see a GUI fix via css, since the name is actually truncated..

Is there any workaround or open request?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure any of these workarounds will work in 6.X releases though.   There is an css workaround worth trying though.  Otherwise it is a source code change.


Unfortunately not in 6.1. I can stretch the button, but the actual name is truncated in the html that comes from the server.
