I have a need to see the image file location when hovering over the image in the filmstrip. Here's why; Using the FIND function "ALL Photographs" to locate a image file number the search produces several images in the filmstrip, but to locate the folder the image is in is cumbersome. I either have to right click the image and select "Go to Folder in Library", or use File Explore to locate it. It sure would be helpful to have options available as to what is displayed on hover-over image.

Another option is to hover the mouse over the folder name in the Metadata panel.

That works! Still it would be nice to have some input (configuration) of the hover-over data. Thanks for your help.

Agreed that in general, it would be nice to configure the hover tool-tips the same way you can configure other aspects of the display.
