Lightroom: Better spacing / information density

The list view in different panels needs to be improved. Right now, even the most simple album names are being cut off and hovering over an item takes way too long and doesn't allow for quick judgements with a glance for multiple items.

Example (wasted space marked in red):

The same happens in the presets panel.

If I choose the view without cover images ("Show only names"), I gain exactly 1 letter more visibility. This shouldn't be the case.

Some possible solutions:
  • Get rid of the non functional space that takes up a lot of space;
  • Remove the delay on the hover info pop-up;
  • Add option for more information density in list views;
  • Add option to wrap text so album names can take up two lines (in name list view);
  • And last but not least: make the panel width resizable (or at least the default wider on a bigger screen).
