I've just downloaded the latest version, 2020.2.3, which I do like overall. However, I was horrified to see an issue that keeps coming back, I'm hoping this time it doesn't take as long to fix. I'm referring to the Select tool no longer showing the whole (or at least the majority) of the field name...again (this is at least the 3rd time this has come back). It appears you only show the first 6-9 characters making it so I have to hover my mouse over each column to get the full name or drag the field pane out every time I click on a select tool/join tool/spatial match tool/find nearest tool/etc etc.
I suggested in the past each time this has happened before, that you just drop the description field, which you give the most room to by far. I've been using Alteryx since you were SRC (too depressing to count how many years that's been...so old) and I have not once put anything in the description area, does anyone really ever use this area on a consistent basis? Or if you can't drop it, maybe not allocate all the room to it & make it one of the smaller panes, which would allow for the actual field names to have more display room, which then allows your user base to more easily tell what is in the data they just loaded.
This is definitely a step backwards in my mind in design/time efficiency, holding out hope this was an oversight & will be fixed next release (fingers crossed, rabbit foot rubbed, lucky shirt on, donated to charity, & knocked on wood)! Please please please.
