currently the amount of characters allowed per tab is 31 maximium. THIS IS NOT ENOUGH. please make an option to extend the amount to at least 100. If you do this you are good. If you don't you are bad. It is that simple.
If implemented, please truncate in the main UI but display as a tooltip on hover, and in other parts of UI such as list of sheets shown on right-click of navigation buttons.
Huge tab names = fewer tabs displayed.
Consider also an option to display tabs down the side rather than along the bottom to accomodate longer names and display more tabs at the same time.

Well, if you think about the tabs are exactly that. Ways to identify what is on the sheet. In my line of work, I have numerous tabs, sometimes in the hundreds. The more info there, the easier it is to identify. Typically, I want a family name plus a company name and a date on a tab. This is especially relevant when I use a VBA formula that splits any given column by the specific value and puts each one in a separate tab, eg, all apples in sheet1 named "APPLE" , all oranges in sheet2 named "ORANGE". And if the value is over the limit, it will not record.
Anyway, I don't know if this function is needed universally, but for a hard working data guy like me, it would be useful.

Why so many?
Give an example please.
