Stopping Family Tree Maker for Mac 2 from abbreviating names

Does anyone know how to keep FTM from abbreviating names that are displayed on the Family pane? Is there a limit to how many characters you can have in each person's "bubble" in that display? I am entering siblings whose given names all begin with the same letter.

Also, in the index, how do I add "christening" to the drop-down menu? I don't have any birth dates, only christening dates. All the birth dates say "Unknown." I want to be able to sort by christening dates.
