      Description

      Description:
      In Liferay 7.0 DE, structure names and document types have a really narrow popup bar with large font. Anything that strays outside of the constraints of the popup bar are truncated and an ellipsis (...) is appended to the end of the name. This is present for the out-of-box choices which are displayed as follows on 100% zoom standard on Chrome (i.e. no adjustments to the zoom):

      • Multiple Docum...
      • Sales Presentati...

      The problem is that this will be a problem for Administrators who need to categorize their structures/document types descriptively. Let's say for example, that I work at a company that has a business requirements which necessitate that we indicate the full name of the team as well as the name of the project. Unfortunately, my team's name and the client's name combined is pretty long. I am tasked to enter the following:

      1. [Liferay Support Team] CLIENT-A
      2. [Liferay Support Team] CLIENT-B
      3. [Liferay Support Team] CLIENT-C
      4. [Liferay Support Team] CLIENT-D

      How does this display? It shows up as

      [Liferay Support Team] CLIE...
      [Liferay Support Team] CLIE...
      [Liferay Support Team] CLIE...
      [Liferay Support Team] CLIE...

      It is impossible to differentiate in this case.

      Steps to reproduce:
      1. Start up a clean 7.0 DE bundle
      2. Menu > Liferay DXP > Documents and Media > Action icon (the icon with the three dots) > Document Type
      3. Add a metadata set called [Liferay Support Team] CLIENT-A, and add a boolean field
      4. Add another metadata set called [Liferay Support Team] CLIENT-B and add a boolean field
      5. Add another metadata set called [Liferay Support Team] CLIENT-C and add a boolean field
      6. Add another metadata set called [Liferay Support Team] CLIENT-D and add a boolean field
      7. Go back into Documents and Media and press the + button to Add a new document by Document Type

      Expected Result:
      I will be able to visually discriminate the four separate Document Types from the popout.

      Actual Results:
      I cannot visually identify the separate Document Types from the popout. Attached is a screenshot.
