Bug Description

I edit books outside of the calibre library.

Could the file name of the book being edited be shown somewhere. Preferably in the Window Title so that it also shows up in the taskbar.

I often have two versions of the same book loaded into different editor instances that I show side by side. As things are I can't tell one from the other as the Title bar contains the book title, rather than the name of the file.

Maybe a preference to show book title, file name or file path in Window title. File name is sufficient for me as I differentiate different versions with a sequence number eg "Author - Title.001.epub", "Author - Title.002.epub"

FWIW Sigil shows the file name in Window Title


Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.
