Default Replace Missing File... - File Pathname is too short

I almost posted this in the feature requests but I'm going to call it a bug. I've noticed for awhile that when REAPER asks about replacing missing files that often times, the actual file name gets cut off. The size of the box doesn't seem resizable to view the full file path/name.

Could you either make the box resizable or just larger by default so I can see the full name of the missing file?

Here is a screen shot of what I see:

Don't know if it works on Mac, but on Windows you can click in the file name box to place a cursor there and "scroll" the filename with left/right keyboard keys.

(Just as a workaround in case you didn't know, agreed on the actual issue of course).

Thanks. This appears to work on Mac too. However, a better solution would be nice for cases when you have to manually relink many files by viewing their name to be sure.
