AUTOCAD XREF/BLOCK NESTED OBJECT LIST: not showing full layer name

I'm in a drawing that has an xref. I want to know the layer that one of the lines within an xref is called, so i NX (nested xref)command the sucker.
Problem is though, the box that pops up which has the properties of the line in it (Object, Layer, Color, Linetype) won't show the full layer name if the layer name is longer than what the box allows for.
Is it possible to somehow stretch the box so that i can see the full layer name, or an alternative that lets me see the full name and not just the first 31 characters?

You can try command "LF" in LAYER.vlx which turn off the layer of selected object including nest object in an xref file, then it shows the layer name in the command line window. After that, simply undo or use "LAYERP" to restore previous layer status.
