display of folder names

Post by Jim Leitch » Tue Nov 01, 2011 1:13 pm

I would like to see the Star*Net folder name always displayed along with the project name. This is important because we've been using Star*Net since 1994 and we have created thousands of projects, all with consistent names.

For example, every primary control network is named "ctrl". A secondary dependent project would be named "ctrl2"; one that concerns only Public Land Survey System points would be called "PLSS".

All related projects reside in their own folder; after running 5 or 10 different ones in a day, looking at Project Manager with multiple instances of only the word "ctrl" is not useful. Can't really tell at a glance which is which.

Hi, if you hover your mouse over the filename on the Project Manager screen you'll get a tooltip pop up which shows the full path.

I would like to see folder name present at all times, not only when viewing Project Manager. Specifically the file edit window that shows file name; it would be helpful to see full path and filename there.
