Currently palette width grows without bound to accommodate the length of the longest entry. This behavior is not always desirable, such as when a set amount of screen space is to be devoted to each window and palette. In such cases having a fixed size is preferable with scrolling as needed to show the entire name as is already the case for palette height.

Propose, then, that palette width be static rather than dynamic or controlled by a preferences option (General, Interface: checkbox "Dynamic Palette Width"). When not using dynamic palette width and an entry is too wide to display in the current width create a bottom scrollbar to allow scrolling back and forth, also use the entry name as a tool tip when the mouse is over the entry.
