Elided filepaths do not have tooltips

Postby jharper » Mon Jan 26, 2015 7:07 pm

I often have filepaths that are fairly deep and become elided ("[Drive]:\[Path]\[Path]...\[Path]\filename.ext"). Unfortunately, this means that I can't see the full path to the file. In most software, a tooltip will popup displaying the full path and filename. This should be a relatively easy add when populating the menu list:

Code: Select all

QString filepath = /*something*/;
QAction menuAct = /*something*/;
menuAct->setText(filepath);
menuAct->setToolTip(filepath);

The tooltips can be customized: Tools » Settings... » Browser » Browser » Insert >>

Code: Select all

{Directory}{Filename With Ext}

That's my bad. I meant there are no tooltips for the files in the recent files list.

Correct. Since long filepaths are elided, a non-elided filepath in a tooltip would be beneficial.
