      Description

      The left column that has the "+Create new group" button, "Quick links", and "Browse folder" areas should be able to "drag to resize" ( at least from right to left) to allow the "Browse folder" function to display longer paths/names.

      The current Max characters displayed is (about) 30. Most group structures will likely need a wider display to see the structure.

      An easy example to see the problem is:
      Root:Grouper Adminstration:Attribute:userData.
      Almost all of the children of userData are "truncated" by the right edge of the UI.

      Yes there is a horizontal scroll bar, but that is not as nice as an expandable UI frame.

      As another possible alternative: Make the "Browse Folders" span both columns in the UI at the very top. Leave it collapsed by default. (Just another thought.)
