Have you thought of having shorter file names and using the document's metadata (File > File info) for some of this information?

I have OSX 10.12.4 and Photoshop CC 2017.1.1 That doesn't change the field size.
The File > Open/Save/Save As... dialogs are not part of the Adobe software, they are OSX system dialogs called up by Photoshop, and Adobe Systems has no control over what is called up. That is Apple's end. Adobe dialogs change from dark to light depending on the interface settings. The Save As dialog has the OSX System colors and controls.
Betalogue » ‘Save’ dialog in Mac OS X: Needs resizable ‘Save As:’ field And this is from 2010.
So since you can't tinker with your work machine, I have an idea.
Install and use Bridge CC 2017. You can rename your files there and the filename field is much larger. You can even batch rename. It's a very useful tool and it is a free download since you are a CC subscriber.
Thanks for the reply... unfortunately I cant change the way files are named at my workplace. There are quite a few PC users who rely on the filename details to find the right image. We also use EasyFind to track down files and folders and that app cant give metadata search results.
It seems to be an OSX issue, from what I have now read. So I guess the Adobe forums are not the ideal place to solve the issue.
Thanks for you help though!
