Gmail now displays long labels better

Do you have long labels in Gmail? I do, because I use the ‘nested label‘ feature in Gmail.

But, previously,  long labels are not displayed very nice in Gmail (screenshot taken from the official Gmail blog):


But now things are getting better, long Gmail labels will be shortened when displaying in the conversations view in Gmail:

Gmail Keeper can backup the strange Gmail labels

I got an email from Gmail user who’s concerned about Gmail Keeper’s ability of handling strange Gmail labels – labels that are containing irregular characters, such as /\~*, etc.

Well, the answer is YES, since I have specifically tested Gmail Keeper against such situation. If you found a Gmail label that can’t be backed up by Gmail Keeper, let me know.

This screenshot shows in the backup report window how strange labels were handled.
