Not sure if this is the right place to ask but is it possible to have MP show the file names of photos that are being displayed in the photo viewer?

I like to name my files with a description of what the photo is about so having this on the screen as an overlay on maybe the lower right corner would let me know what I am looking at

Thanks

Just press F3 ;)
Ok thanks that worked but having to do it for every photo is a bit tedious. Would be nice to be able to lock it on?

Also while testing on MP 1.25 I noticed that if you start a slideshow and after a few photos you then pause and press F3 it only displays the filename from the first photo not the one you are actually viewing. It's as if it's not staying in sync with the slideshow if that makes sense!

    Thanks is that something I need to follow up on and if so who to?
    I´ll inform devs about this and then we wait for a solution ;)
    @ajs What do you think about the possibility to show the name of a photo when in fullscreen (other than pressing F3 for EXIF-Infos)?

    It seems to me that such a possibility already exists, but I could be mistaken ...

    I was wrong, there is no such possibility, but I think you can add, just I don’t know how best, add it to the settings, or to the skin ...

    We could test adding the new property in skin with fade after some time ;)

    Thanks guys good to see there might be a solution?

    Just a reminder also about the filename display not staying in sync when running in slideshow mode (MP 1.25 so it may be fixed in later releases)

    Thanks

    There was no change obviously related to it, but maybe something as the fixed user management or similar made it.

    I remember that the home content was not always up to date. One situation I think can cause this is during import as the list only update after the import is completed. Maybe we could have the force behavior during import only and after it completes the home content should always be up to date?
