Show the current file name and path in the titlebar.

If path name is long and titlebar can't display all of it, insert ... (periods)
to replace middle part of path name.

Allow this feature to be enabled/disabled with a checkbox on global options page.

Changing component as long as title bar and file name path refers to all
Comment 3 pfadwaechter 2010-01-23 12:56:47 UTC
i second that request!
this would be an extremely useful enhancement to prevent accidental deletion or 
modification of content in the wrong documents and to avoid confusion when 
multiple opened documents share the same or a similar file name.

this is another example for something that should be easy to code but that 
would make a huge enhancement ...

This would be extremely useful and should be an option. 

I constantly use the same file names in different folders and load them together in ooo. 

I must go in File -> Properties each time to check what is the currently displayed file. This is cumbersome and error prone. It should be possible to display the full path in the window's caption.

Comment 6 OneSkull 2014-01-06 14:54:07 UTC
