Active file path in document title bar

Recommended Posts

Is there an option to see full address/path of current file? By default it displays only file name with extension. For example, I see "Johns house.vwx" in the documents title bar but would like to see "HDD Name/Projects/2010/John/Johns house.vwx".

On a mac you right click (or control-click) on the title in the banner on the top of the window.

It doesn't work if the file has never been saved.

Michael, great tip! I have often wanted that info without invoking a finder window. But in my system, one has to click on the VW icon, which is grayed out just to the left of the file name text. Clicking on the text or elsewhere in the banner bar has no effect. Except the red yellow green buttons, of course.

And, Duh! this is typ throughout Mac OS files. Live and Learn.

If you do it on Safari pages is also shows the navigation path of the website you're visiting.

It's probably been there since the beginning of OSX, but I only figured it out a couple years ago.

There must be a similar function in Windows.

This works on one Mac and doesn't work on other. Both Macs have same OS version (10.5.8). This doesn't work only for VW files but works for other applications (tried Safari and Excel), so I assume this is related with some VW preferences... any idea?

Update:

I switched worskpaces from mine to Standard and then back to mine - and now it's working!
