Anyway to change Gnome Files (Nautilus) ellipsis position for long file names?

gb flag

It currently puts ellipsis the middle. I want ellipsis at the end. Is that possible, or impossible?

For example, it currently shows O Say can you ... dawn's early light.txt. I want this to be O Say can you see by the dawn's....txt.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
