Import dialog file-browser hides deeply nested directories.

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Resizeable width of import side-panels

I have three businesses and have over 250,000 files. They live in nested directories. AND...

When Importing images (LR4.1, Win7) the FIXED WIDTH browser leaves me with files that I CANNOT ACCESS.

Lightroom's FIXED WIDTH IMPORT BROWSER makes some files INACCESSIBLE because they are hidden under the right edge of the import file broswer pane.

This has been the case for three years now and is rather a nuisance.

Yes, there are work-arounds (move my files to a higher directory during implrt, then move them back down once they are in LR) but that's just me making up for a poor UI decision on the part of the programmers.

This is comes from the programmer's having written their own browser for the import dialog. There are OS browsers available, but they wrote their own.

OMG, I just stumbled upon this and it's driving me mad as well!! There's still no way of resizing the file-browser width when importing media?
