Show full path of selected browser file

Post by JohnButler222 » Sun Feb 02, 2020 5:33 pm

Firstly what a great piece of software, congrats to the author and thanks.

However there is something that is inhibiting my use of this program.

I want to explore images contained within folders, and to be able to see their full path when I click one them.

So I selected to filter for images
And I have View > Show files in subfolders on

But when I select an image, nowhere does it show me the full path.

I think I have explored all options, including:

Tools > Options > Browser > Insert options
Tools > Options > View > Misc > Title bar > Insert options

Am I missing something?
Please help!

Ps this query relates to Windows 10 version, Classic v2.49.2

it's not good with 'Tools > Options > View > Misc > Title bar'?

Show full path of selected item?

I'll try again, my last request for help seems to have disappeared.

I want to explore images contained within folders, and to be able to see their full path when I click one them.

So I selected to filter for images
And I have View > Show files in subfolders on

But when I select an image / thumbnail, nowhere does it show me the full path.

I think I have explored all options, including:

Tools > Options > Browser > Insert options
Tools > Options > View > Misc > Title bar > Insert options

Am I missing something?
Please help!

Sorry I didn't see you had replied already!
Still no luck unfortunately....
If you go into each the folders manually looking for images, the titlebar does show the path.
But with "Show files in subfolders" enabled, the titlebar just says: [Browser - ]

Confirmed :bugconfirmed:

Enabling Show tooltips in ToolsOptions…BrowserBrowser and inserting <Directory><Filename With Ext> doesn't work either if Show all files (recursive) is enabled.

Well, I'm glad it's not just my version, or something I wasn't doing right...
Thanks Pierre, I will keep my fingers crossed that a future version can address this.
I also think it would be great if "Show files in subfolders" was an option that would stay enabled, because when you switch folders, the feature de-activates itself. Maybe I should post that in the suggestions section....
When I'm no longer in debt I'll make a donation! Great software and great support.
