Why not post more information about the shot in develop mode for lightroom?

I seem to be going back to the library mode to find out information about my shot so that I can processes properly or figure out which shot I want to process. I would like to see all information about the shot in develop mode, such as file name, size, date shot, lens used, focal length when shot, shutter speed, f stop, iso, cropped dimension, and calculated megapixels (this would be new). I do have some of this information posted on the photo in develop mode, but I can't see all of it, so I have to flip back to library mode to see it.

If you use the information overlays you can get almost all of this now.

Your File Name and its folder appear in the breadcrumb bar just above the filmstrip.

My info overlays [ I ] currently show: Date/Time taken, Cropped Pixel Dimension, Shutter Speed, F Stop, ISO, Lens used, Megapixels and Focal Length where appropriate.

I don't see what is missing from your list.

If you go to View>View Options, you can hand pick the information the two View Overlays show.

Excellent! Thanks for the tip. I'm not sure how to display both loop views at the same time. However, I discovered that "Common Photo Settings" contain just about everything I need. Just can't view megapixels and crop dimensions at the same time with file name, but that is minor. Thanks for the help!
