Version: 5.4.3 RC3

a) In the "File|Properties" window, long filepaths aren't shown completely.

What might work well:
- Always show at-least the filename.
- some dots, "..." (probably in the middle of the path, as both the beginning and end can be important).
- horizontally-resizable window.

b) The seven fields below are slightly off-center, and are harder to read (just for me) than the former gray-color fields (now white).

    Work in progress:
    - Fixed the alignment issues of the seven white* boxes.
    - The dropdown box now prints file names only instead of full paths plus file names.
    - The "Absolute" field is unchanged, but making that shorter isn't really useful.
    - I've have the whole form about 50px by 50px bigger.
    - File size is now pretty printed in bytes/KiB/MiB/etc instead of a number.

    *I've replaced the non-copyable bold text by readonly edit boxes so users can copy the provided data. It's quite useful.

    That all looks practical.
    Yes, the 'Absolute' field can be dragged with the cursor to be completely viewed. Would it be hard to implement a horizontally-resizable window, that remembers the size? Then the user could be ultimately convenienced, if they e.g. tend to have long paths on their projects.
