More informative window title/caption
Submitted by Pander
Please provide more informative window title.
When working with different PDF files that have the same title, it can be confusing, which one you are looking at in evince because the window title (the caption in window decoration) and what is shown with ALT+TAB is only the title.
Properties (ALT+ENTER) can provide information on the file name but that is usually truncated for long path names into /home/username/Documents/projects/... and resizing of the dialogue is needed to figure out again which document you are looking at.
Please offer in the view menu the following checkable menu items:
- File Name in Caption
- Base Path in Caption
By default, both are switched off, as is the current situation. When the first is enabled, the window caption will go from: Title to Title - filename.pdf
When the only the second is enabled, the window caption will go from: Title to Title - (/tmp) or Title - (~/Documents/project) the latter will be in case the base path contains /home/username (this is also the case in gedit).
When both are enabled, the window caption will go from: Title to Title - filename.pdf (/tmp) or Title - filename.pdf (~/Documents/project)
Of course provide the necessary shotcuts/hotkeys too for the two menu items.
Implementing this will enable all users to quickly determine which document one is looking at, when documents have identical titles. This will increase user satisfaction a lot when switching between documents with identical titles.
