I am trying to update/merge code I have been working on with different PC's.
To review the differences, I am opening files of the same file name from two directories.
Is there a way to display the full path name of each file in the file window header ?

Unfortunately Plato apears to be focused on developing a single project. It is not easy to identify the path of a file that is opened.
The only way I am aware of how to find the path of a file is first select the file window, then select File>Open or the Open icon in the toolbar.

Is there a better way ?

By default Plato provides a tab view and if you hover over a tab then a tooltip is displayed providing the full path of the file. There are other ways to get the path but this is the simplest.

Paul,

Thanks for the advice.
The tree name does display if in "tab view", bu if I select Window > Tile Vertically, the hover does not appear to work.
I can't see how to go back to the "tab view" after selecting "Tile Vertically" ?

John

Select "Castcade" then maximise one of the child windows.
