Glad you implemented the maximum row number thingy in dolphin. The file names are now truncated as expected - *but* I cannot see *that* they truncated. There is nothing that gives a hint that the filename actually is longer than shown. In former dolphin versions the file name was fading at the end so it was clear it's not the ending. Can you please at least add three dots when the name is not fully shown?
filename is just cut
filename should either fade out or three dots should be shown
I just see, in some very rare cases there are three dots...
They appear when the filename is truncated behind a letter. With my files this mostly is not the case, they contain some underscores and in most cases the filename is truncated behind one of the underscores or behind a dot. But even when the name is truncated behind a special character those three dots should appear.
Thanks for the report, I can reproduce the problem.

Fix filename trucation issues in Icons View with maximum number of lines
When the name of a file is too long to be shown inside the maximum
number of lines, the last line is elided. However, there were several
problems before this commit:
(a) "lastTextLine", which contains the text to be elided, was not
assigned the complete remaining text, but only the part that would
be put into the last line if there were more lines following. This
may be less than what would fit into the line because we try to not
break the text at random points.
(b) QFontMetrics::elidedText() was not given the width that is available
for the last line (that would be maxWidth), but only the width that
would be occupied by the text if there were more lines following
(c) The variable "nameWidth", which is required to calculate the QRectF
that is reserved for the name, was not updated correctly.
The result is that the text was sometimes trucated too early (especially
if there would be a line break early in the text if we had more lines
available), that there may be insufficient space to show the "...", and
that the hover/selection rectangle might be too narrow.
