Ideally, this should be a user-selected option on the Window/Show pull-down menu. Suggested placement for the filename text is replacing the Slide # string which is redundant with the large numeral.
It might be useful for me to explain how I use the filename (which in my case is usually the Image number assigned by the camera) in the slide line. Most of the shows I make are travelogues of trips my wife and I take to various corners of the world where we may take several hundred pictures that have to be brutally edited down to a reasonable size show. I will drop a whole lot of "possible" pictures into the show, knowing that I will be editing out a large number of them. I will delete some immediately, make written notes of others for possible deletion and have my wife (my greatest critic!) review them and make notes for deletion, changing order, etc. Of course all these notes could refer to the slide number -- but that becomes useless as soon as one delete or add is made as each subsequent slide is renumbered. The filename is constant and follows the actual slide, no matter what happens to its slide number. I realize the filename is still available, but I have to bring up another window each time I want to see it, and it becomes a real frustration if I am looking for a specific filename as I have to guess as to which slide it is, opening windows until I find it. Slows the process immensely.
Please, Photodex, give us back our filename!
