The menu options do show file name, path, path/file name or "file name without
extension". But it is not possible to change the formatting: it's always
"path/file name"

Where do you get "Path"? Please give a detailed step by step description.

How to reproduce it:

First: use the Menu Insert > Fields > File Name

This will insert the file name field to the page.

Now do select this field object and press the right mouse button (Mac: ctrl+mouse)

This will show various options, such as

File Name
Path/File Name
File Name without extension

Selected and shown is Path/File Name.

Neither Fixed nor Variable is marked.
Selecting other options does not change the field behavior.

Additional details:

The feature does work in Writer, but not in Presentation.

When you double click the field in Writer, it does open a dialog in order to
change the formatting. When you double click in Impress, nothing changes.

When you copy/paste it from Writer to the Presentation as a Writer's text
object, it does no longer show the file name at all. However, copy/paste of e.g.
the page number field does work. 

I'm not aware of any other choice how to copy/paste a field from Writer to
Impress. But this looks like yet another broken detail.

Reproducible. Reassigned. Reproducible also under windows.
