Description dbell 2011-10-08 05:39:38 UTC
[ BUILD # : 201110020601 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.6.26 ]

When using "Diff To..." (right-click editor tab > Diff To...), the files in the
diff are displayed using their absolute paths. If the paths are too long, they
are truncated with "...". There is no way to see the actual simple file names
of the two files, except for the implied names in the tab.

I think people in diff component will have their reasons. I am changing category.

There's a tooltip over the path, isn't there?
