How can I limit the width of the 'name' column globally

I have a typical lister configuration that consists of 'Name', 'Size', 'Date', and a few others. When navigating to a folder that contains very long file names Opus slides the size and date columns to the right and usually off the page.

Is there a way to set the maximum width allowed for a file name such that columns to the right are still visible when landing in a folder with long names?

I would like this setting to apply to all displays ie a global setting.

Thank You

in the Folder Options dialog, you can set max widths (in pixels) for different columns, or set the max to "Fill" to make it use any space which is left over, without pushing off other columns (unless the other columns are set to "Collapse" or "Expand").

Folder Formats: Quick Guide explains how to make changes to the default format which will be used in all folders.

Thank you! This helped me as well.
