Re: Labels and long names

Could this be a feature instead of a problem.  If the ballot is printed and
GEMS set for election, the complete candidate name could be used for reports
instead of the shortened name.  Is it possible to lock up the "candidates
tab in the race editor" and leave the list view open for correct names for
the internet and jresult client.
