Description Markus Waibel 2005-04-06 16:42:29 UTC
Version:           0.4 (using KDE 3.4.0, Debian Package 4:3.4.0-0pre2 (3.1))
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-8)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.8-1-386

Currently, kpdf shows complete filenames including foldernames in the taskbar (e.g. file:///home/wherever/whatever/thefile/is/only/here.pdf). This makes navigation between windows difficult if multiple files are opened. I suggest just showing the filenames (kate does it, e.g.).
Comment 1 Nicolas Dumoulin 2005-12-05 14:52:47 UTC
Or the title metada (if present) ?
Comment 2 Matt Rudary 2006-01-12 22:07:01 UTC
I agree with bobuse -- adding title metadata if present would be a good alternative to long filenames.

This was recently implemented in KPDF, so with KDE 3.5.6 you will have the file name only in the KPDF window title. Thanks İsmail 'cartman' Dönmez for the patch!
About the possibility to use the document title is available, it was already implemented time ago in okular, the KPDF successor for KDE 4.

I'm using KPDF 0.5.7 and indeed it only displays the filename as window title. But I've chosen the option to watch changes of the file and if KPDF automatically reloads the changed file the window title again displays the full path!

SVN commit 686888 by pino:

Sets the filename as title also when reloading the document.
