get long icon titles on desktop

A while ago ToZ published this bit of code to allow longer icon titles on the desktop:

style “xfdesktop-icon-view” {
    XfdesktopIconView::ellipsize-icon-labels = 0
}
widget_class “*XfdesktopIconView*” style “xfdesktop-icon-view”

Now testing Xfce 4.14.4 on our early MX-19 alpha, I've moved that into the css at the new location ~/.config/gtk-3.0. The icon title ("Users Manual") is full length in 2 rows when selected, but reads "Users..." when not selected. This may have been the case earlier, I am no longer sure; it's also possible, always, that I made a mistake somewhere,

Is there a way to have the desired two-word title show correctly without being selected?

TIA

Re: get long icon titles on desktop

Jerry, here are the GTK3 versions of those xfdesktop settings:

/* xfdesktop */
XfdesktopIconView.view {
	-XfdesktopIconView-label-alpha:0;
	-XfdesktopIconView-selected-label-alpha:0;
	-XfdesktopIconView-ellipsize-icon-labels:0;
	-XfdesktopIconView-tooltip-size:128;
	-XfdesktopIconView-cell-spacing:0;
	-XfdesktopIconView-cell-padding:20;
	-XfdesktopIconView-cell-text-width-proportion:3.3;
}

Why yes it does!

Thanks, as always, ToZ--it's great for us to have backup on things like this!
