  • How to determine name of currently loaded Workspace?

    Is the name of the currently loaded Workspace displayed anywhere?

    If not, some suggestions:
    (1) Add a message to the output log showing the name of the Workspace when the Workspace is loaded.
    (2) In the pull down menu Session > Load Workspace, put a checkmark in front of the currently loaded Workspace. If the Workspace has been modified since it was loaded (for example by adding/deleting tabs), then change the checkmark to an asterisk. If no Workspace has been loaded, then no marks.
    (3) Add info in (2) to the Manage Workspaces window.

    I would find this helpful for managing Workspaces.

    Thanks.

    No, the name isn't displayed anywhere. After you load a workspace BC just considers them a bunch of separate sessions again; there's no concept of a "current" workspace. To do any of your suggestions we would have to add that, and I don't think that's too likely without more requests for it.

      The existence of "Save Wokrspace As..." does suggest otherwise!

      I hereby second Mark's request.

        I am missing this too.

        however I would prefer current workspace to be added to window title
        i.e. new title would be something like
        MyFileName.c - Text Compare - MyWorkspaceName - Beyond Compare

        and maybe even a * after MyWorkspace if the tabs that are open differs from those in the saved version (opening a new tab and close it again should result in no star)

        reason I want it in window title is when using /solo and tabbing between bc windows

        /jens
