More than 8 chars for Project names - atimbral - 08-06-2019

Could we please have more than 8 characters to name Projects? I've got a bunch of cryptic abbreviations that I don't remember what they mean from 1 week to another. There’s lots of room on the Load Project screen for longer names.

I think the only other place that the Project name appears is on the Sequencer screen, and that space looks like it is limited to 8 characters, but you could just truncate the name and add 3 dots (…) at the end. If that made it too ambiguous, the user can just hop back to the Project screen where the full name of the current project is displayed at the top for reference.

Maybe something in the range of 15-20 chars? Is this possible?

Also, a way to organize the files on the Load Project screen would be nice. At least alphabetical order.

Longer filenames are easy possible, but 3 dots or something like this is not a good idea for the sequencer screen. Maybe a truncated filename then only limited to 8 characters of course.
Alphabetical order has been requested before and there i also describe why this is not possible.
You got to sort your project files and samples on the sd card yourself.
