The current solution was the one which used the least space. If you look in the Project Browser at "Message Box" or "revIDEProjectBrowser" that have two behaviors that the spacing for between the behaviors is minimal to save space, also that is the reason why they are oval so you can reduce the spacing between behaviors.

I think it’s just a space issue. Around the time Bernd did his patch for this I had a play with a collapsing breadcrumb widget which can pack as much info as there is space to do so for this type of thing. I never cleaned it up for use but if someone has some time to do so it could be a good addition:

https://github.com/montegoulding/livecode/blob/breadcrumb/extensions/widgets/breakdcrumb/breadcrumb.lcb <https://github.com/montegoulding/livecode/blob/breadcrumb/extensions/widgets/breakdcrumb/breadcrumb.lcb>

It actually used a hitTestPath function of widgetutils that was never merged too so that would need to be copied from here https://github.com/montegoulding/livecode/blob/hittest/extensions/modules/widget-utils/widget-utils.lcb#L287 <https://github.com/montegoulding/livecode/blob/hittest/extensions/modules/widget-utils/widget-utils.lcb#L287>

Cheers
