File name with path

Post by ktenney »

Howdy,

I want to accesss the fully qualified name of a file which I have selected.

How do I find this to paste to the clipboard?

Thanks,
Kent

It works the same (complicated) way as in MS Explorer:
You have to use the Property dialog the file, which you can open via menu 'Edit->Properties' or Ctrl+E. On the folder tab 'File information' you will find the path and filename which you can select and copy.

The file list ('Tools->Generate Files listing') would be a good means to provide full name and path, but at the moment this info is not given. See the discussion on Générer une liste de fichiers, which is partly in English.

Unfortunately the properties dialog presents the file name and the path on different lines, making it even more cumbersome to get a fully qualified name.

No, use Ctrl+C (copy filename + image in the clipboard)
