Request: full file name in application title bar

4 posts in this topic

Hi Dan,

A really small request:

Can you please display the complete filename in the title bar?  Path + filename would be great too, but just the filename would be appreciated.

Truncated filenames in the tabs is fine.  I'm just looking for a way to quickly identify which specific file I'm looking at when I have several open files that are named sequentially.

Thanks!

Troy

ExpertGPS currently displays "ExpertGPS - [Filename.gpx]" in the title bar. I checked the code, and any truncation of the filename is happening way down in a Windows API, so I don't think there's anything I can do about it.

Hi Dan,

As a functional workaround, could you implement hover text on the file tab instead to show the full path, or at least the full filename?

If that's a pain, could you add a read-only field in the File --> Information about this GPX File dialog, showing the full path?

Thanks,
Troy

If you want a command that shows you the full file path, click Save As on the File menu, see the full file path and name, and then click Cancel.
