Textbox in layout that shows name of arbitrary picture

Postby DarinH » Fri Jan 23, 2009 5:47 pm

I know it's been suggested a couple times, but I thought I'd throw my vote in for this one as well.

I've got a multimonitor layout that shows an array of photos, some of which I'd like to cull as I notice them.

But since there's no way to tell what their names are, it's not possible right now.

It's a pretty minor thing, and I really like WC, I'm just throwing another vote on the fire<g>

Thanks

I'm happy to say that this is included in the the current closed Beta 2 build of 3.6. Described as follows:
Text objects in layouts can now be linked to a wallpaper object in your layout. This allows you to use the %wallpapername% and other commands to display information about the wallpaper being shown in the linked wallpaper object.
