Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity-place-files

Hoping this is the right package to file this against.

Usage case: I have opened a number of files recently with the name "Makefile". I would like to open a particular one via Unity's "Recent Documents" feature, but it only shows file names and not paths.

Suggested fix: add tool tips showing the full path to "Recent Documents".

This is a bug in unity-place-files, not in unity itself (or in unity-2d). Beside this, we need a design decision before apply the changes.
