Artboard names *should not* change to an ellipsis when zoomed out

Since the August 22 release, when zoomed out far enough, artboard names go away and you just see an ellipsis (...). While the artboard names were previously difficult to read (in some cases, text over text), there has to be a better way than removing them completely. Access to the artboard name is important.

    I really dislike the ellipsis, they make it extremely difficult to locate pages when zoomed out. I can barely see a fraction of my screens at 15% (artboard name threshold). It also makes it harder to reorganize the pages, as you no longer have the full or partial title to click and drag.

    I am working on multiple applications with 30+ screens, the sudden removal of artboard names is very frustrating.

    I appreciate this feature. When I zoom out I'm not interested in seeing the names of all, it was distracting. To zoom back in on a specific board I use the design panel list and cmd + 3. Works better than before as click on one artboard when zoomed out was tricky and sometimes had unexpected results.

    Sketch handles this by scaling the artboard name as you zoom out. That would be a better solution.

    Also this seems to be a bug not a feature request, since it used to work and now it doesn't.

    The threshold for the ellipsis seems to be below 15%. It is very disorienting not to see at least the first part of the name when zoomed out on a canvas with many artboards.

    The whole point of zooming out is to zoom back in on what you are looking for but now I can't find it without zooming back in to at least 15%.

    1. Abobe XD
    2. Use crtl+0 (Mac)
    3. readable artboard titles for better orientation
    4. ... can be seen

    Its not helpful when the dartboard title get small when we zoom out. For us was ist very helpful to see them when we overview the all artboards with ctrl+0. Why have Adobe changed that in the new update??
