How can I make the file name column wider in confluence for attachments?

The question is self-explanatory. I must be a dunce because I can't find a way to do this.

Atlassian is looking into fixing this known issue, but they haven't yet. See:


You can make the column wider by using some custom CSS. To set it globally select Browse -> Confluence Admin -> Look and Feel -> Stylesheet and use something similar to:

table.attachments th.filename-column {
  width: 75%;

using a value in place of 75% that's appropriate for the width you want.

To change it for individual spaces use the same CSS, but enter it via Browse -> Space Admin -> Stylesheet.

Hope that helps?


This can't be used with OnDemand either :(.


It made the name column wider, but the filename is still truncated.

Is there a way to fix that too?


Can you please poke atlassian on this question?

I would add this question applies to both the attachments display as well as the attachments macro
