The forms I maintain handle enrollments for a camp. Within a form, it's presented to the user week by week. There are a number (11 to be exact) of fields whose name is of the form:
Week 1 June 11 -15 - Member
Week 1 June 11 -15 - Guest
Week 1 June 11 -15 -Golf Club Rental
for each week there is a calculated total for these 3 items:
Week 1 June 11 - 15 Fee Total
When I enter the field names into the calculation for Week 1 June 11 - 15 Fee Total, the width of the field name shown in the formula is so short,it create does not visibly distinguish between the 3 fields in the formula. That makes creating the formula very very error prone. I must resort to deleting the formula and reentering it if I suspect I've gotten the wrong one. That risks making more errors. If I redesign the naming of the Week 1 June 11 -15 field to put Member or Guest first, then I'm prone to erroneously picking the wrong week! All of these errors are not hypothetical. I just fixed another one today.
Could you make it that if I hover over a field name in the formula, it pops up the entire field name?
OR...am missing something that's already there to solve this problem ?

I understand your concern. If the field name is long and if they start with the same words, you cannot see which field you have selected in the Form Calculation Widget.
I will make a request so that the full field name is shown on hover.
Let me know if I misunderstood your request.

Unfortunately, we cannot ensure if this will be implemented or provide an ETA, it may depend on the number of users requesting the same feature, if we receive a considerable amount of request for this feature, it will be surely developed.
