I suggest you ...

shorten the author names in Mendeley Desktop Library overview

Since the last update now all the author names in the library overview are displayed completely including surname and last name. In my opinion, this is way too much detail I don't need, and it makes the library overview window look fully overloaded for the eye. So I'd really wish to have an opportunity to change this to the original (before) settings.

    Yes please! This is so disruptive. I can't find papers anymore in the library!

    Wish I saw your comment/request before updating. Not sure why Mendeley thought it was a brilliant idea to include the authors full name in the library overview. The prior display option of just last names was ideal.

    Mendeley please add an option to revert back to the last name only setting.
