Description Petr Pisl 2009-12-03 09:31:20 UTC
This issue can help to solve the problem mentioned in issue #178090 and this issue is the main motivation for this enhancement. 

Almost every editor (including other ides) display the path to the edited file in the title bar. It would be great (but not necessary) if the path length could be configurable. It means how many levels up to the file should be displayed.

I totally agree. I have filled relevant issue #155833

For Java project can be show full classpath and for php project file path relative to project root.

Any news on this? I work with a tonne of classes with the same names in different namespaces (directories - I use PHP) and I continually have to go to my auto hidden, docked project window to see where I'm at.

I don't think this is a minor issue, please pay attention to this.

Once you opened several files (especially some of them have the same file name), you would be eager to know which file you are editing.

Hovering your mouse on the tab and waiting for the path shown, instead of taking a glance at the title bar is a bad idea, and this also gives you a negative impact.
