Folder Path Name Display
« on: November 03, 2019, 07:14:40 AM »
I don't usually pay attention to the folder path at the bottom of a contact sheet. My work flow and folder structure is the same every time so I have no need to reference it.

Today I'm working on a project that combines folders from several different takes and so requires a new organizational structure.

I got confused when a folder path name appeared to be incorrect. Then I realized that the size of the window wasn't allowing a complete display of the path name.

I wonder is there should be an indication that it is truncated?

thanks
Simon

And also why do I have to have a photo selected to have the path display. It would be great to have the path displayed even without a photo selected please.

Simon,

A contact sheet can browse multiple folders.  What should it show when no image is displayed and there is more than one folder in the contact sheet?

Hi Kirk,

Hmmmmm, good question. I hadn't realized that. I don't use the program that way. I guess there's a capability I might use for my personal work.

I suppose it could display the path of the photo that is under the mouse cursor, but it would update frequently as you moved your mouse around.

Can't you already basically do this with "Show Info tooltips" turned on and populate that with the {path} variable?
