258 - Wider frame or intelligent names

What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?

Blizzard's long names and the space available have reduced my Leatherworking, Tailoring, and Blacksmithing to multiple lines of "Crafted Dreadful... " etc.

Enhancement #1 would be to make the skillet frame wider so more of the recipe name can be displayed. Enhancement #2 would be to change all occurrences of "Crafted" to "C.", all occurrences of "Dreadful" to "D." etc. This would probably require an option to turn it on and off. Enhancement #3 would be to increase the vertical size of each line so that it can fit two lines of text, without the nasty overlap that occurs now :-)

Please provide any additional information below.

A neat way of implementing enhancement #2 would be to add an editable list of words and abbreviations. No option needed as an empty list is the same as off.

If enhancement #1 (editing the XML) scares you, I can volunteer to do that for you. I could probably do #3 as well.

    The Skillet frame is resizable from the lower right corner.

    What about a staggered display?  There are specific groups of gear, that can be sorted by name and item level, with the couple of generic pieces that can be used by multiple classes.

    + Crafted Dreadful Gladiator's
       - Dragonhide Boots [druid]
       - Dragonhide Robes [druid]
    + Crafted Malevolent Gladiator's
       - Leather Legguards [rogue]
       - Leather Spaulders [rogue]
    + Crafted Malevolent Gladiator's
       - Copperskin Gloves [monk]
       - Copperskin Helm [monk]
    + Crafted Malovelent Gladiator's
       - Waistband of Accuracy [druid, monk, rogue]
       - Boots of Cruelty [druid, monk, rogue]
       - Armwraps of Alacrity [druid, monk, rogue]

    BTW, I have LilSparkysWorkshop installed but turning it off results in lots of "Crafted Dreadful Gladiator..." which is only marginally better.
