Hello, I would like to begin by saying thank you for this plugin. The plugin seems to offer great functionality free of any major issue and I believe I will see much usage.

My question pertains to the Categories selection of the widget. The widget shows all categories by default, and does not seem to wrap text. This leaves me with two main questions:

1. Can display be set to initially show just the top-level categories, only showing child categories once their parent is selected? For example, if we have Apparel, Accessories, and one Other top-level category, but each has a few child categories such as mens, womens, etc., every single category is shown. I'd love to see Men/women/etc for each only shown once their parent is selected.

2. There are some longer categories that absolutely cannot be shortened. These categories are "cut-off" from the selection field due to their length. I have made text size smaller and increased the width of my sidebar overall, however the text is still cut off and UI will be negatively impacted if I continue to reduce text size or increase sidebar width any more than I have already. Is there a way to force the option to break into two lines or wrap into a second line rather than overflowing and being hidden?

Thank you in advance, I look forward to increased utilization of this plugin.

Welcome to our forum.

I understand your issue,

#1. Unfortunately, display top category feature isn't available, but you can remove existing category input fields and add your own input field via action hook and filter query based on your input fields, Please see the documentation

#2. this is probably CSS issue, we haven't applied any CSS for input fields. please send me your shop page url, i will check this.

Hello, thank you for the swift reply. In regards to your answers:

1. Excellent, I will work with this and try to work some conditions there.

2. Okay, so without any CSS applied, should the text per item be wrapped by default for any items that are wider then the sidebar view?
