module name truncated

VASSAL 3.2.17

I used Save As to make another copy of a module. I opened the new copy, then exited, went into the editor, and changed the module name. The new copy's name is truncated in the library listing. I tried changing the module name and it looks like the name displayed in the library listing is limited to the length of the name the first time I opened it.

Removing the module and re-opening cleared the problem: The new, longer, name displays fully.

As you make changes in the editor just about anywhere, you will notice that sometimes names get truncated ...especially if they are longer than what was originally there. That's been a common issue for as long as I can remember. Just keep in mind that you're not losing information and that once you save the module and re-open it, the names will appear fine.
