Document name in Window Title


Recommended Posts

Hi,
This is an extremely simple feature that would be very useful to everyone using software tracking for time management and billing: Expose the active document name in the window title (like MS Office, Adobe apps and others do). This would allow software tracking the active application window not only to know what application is being used, but also the document that is being edited.
In our studio we use Manic Time for that task, but there are others that use the same parameter. Windows 10 timeline uses also that parameter if its available (it shows in the timeline view, minimized apps, etc.).

Right now Affinity apps on Windows only display the application name in the window title area, and that way it's impossible to know what document has been edited if you want to check your tracking history and record what you spent the day working on. It would be a huge time saver if we could get that information in our tracking software.

Thanks in advance!

It is also pretty much standard behavior in every program. Even browsers.
