cropped entry in chart element drop down

The current width of the toolbar control can hold ~28 characters, while the
majority of entries in the drop down are less that 18 characters long. This
same issue is present in the font name drop down, as the control can display
about ~16 characters and you can have fonts with similar beginnings that look
exactly the same when the drop down is closed.

If a user decides to use the chart element drop down to select an entry, he/she
already knows what is selected and it also shows that selection on the chart,
so there isnt a possibility that a user wouldnt be able to distinguish what is
currently selected because text in the chart element is cropped. The chart
element drop down also doesnt list all the possible things that can be
selected, like when you have a pie chart and it doesnt show the data point
entries, so a user will need to click on the chart to get full access to all
possible things to format in a chart.

Maybe cropping by half is to aggressive but think we can crop atleast 15
percent and still maintain the corner cases with Data Series.
