Description crimcat 2009-03-16 13:00:15 UTC

Please, add a possibility to obtain a full path of the file opened in the editor (maybe, a menu item or info bubble 
with copy/paste functionality). Now, it's very hard to find out which file is opened in the editor having only a file 
name (especially, in projects where there are several files with the same names, like in modules or plugins).
Comment 1 Vladimir Voskresensky 2009-03-16 13:17:14 UTC
how about:
1) to see just name => hover tooltip on document's tab
2) to C&P path => Select file in Project (Ctrl+Shift+2), in context menu select file's Properties => "All Files" , Ctrl+C

This is a possibility, but it's a quite long sequence. Quite often I need to have an easier way.
It is essential when you're exploring already existing code (let's assume that you need to walk thru ~50 files in
different folders, and then copy file paths to a documentation file).
