If I am editing, for example, source code and copying/pasting from 2 different sources, it is possible (and happens to me, at least), that the files may be named the same. For example, I might have opened both
  • G:\project1\common.js, and
  • G:\project3\common.js
so that I can copy/paste routines, but really can't tell at a glance which is which!

Is it possible to implement tooltips on tabs, so that when you hover the mouse over the tab you can see the path to the file? It could be an option which you could enable/disable.

Also, I wish to revive an old request (here, for example) - it would be nice if the active tab had a different color (or ?) to make it stand out more.

Thanks for considering these...

Full path is shown in program title in format "AkelPad - [C:\File.txt]".

Instructor, yes, full path shown there, but only for active document, I think Surveyor wants to know full file path without activating it.
