    Hi, first time posting here.

    I've been using HTML Kit for a few months now and really like how it works. There is one thing that would be great if it could be included in an update at some point.

    I use a time tracking program that monitors my program usage so I can easily log what I do on the computer to clients. This program uses the application title to auto tag what I was working on, unfortunately HTML-Kit doesn't update the app title to the active file. I have seen other programs do this so would be awesome if HTML-Kit could also integrate that too.

    Thanks,
    Brent

      Hi Brent,

      Welcome to the support forums!

      Have a question for you... would it really help you if HTML-Kit Tools
      were to append the name of the active file (without the full path) to
      the application title?

      (A) If it only appends the file name+extension you might end up with a
      single reference to index.html, for example, when in fact they're
      multiple files from various projects/directories.

      "HTML-Kit Tools -- index.html" or "index.html -- HTML-Kit Tools"

      (B) If Tools were to append the full path, it could create very long
      application titles that in some cases get cut off.

      "HTML-Kit Tools --
      C:\Users\Someone\Documents\WebSites\bookstore\about\index.html"

      (A) would definitely look better than (B) but I'm not sure (A) would be
      much use to you. What do you think?

        Hi Chami,

        Thanks for the reply :)

        I see what you mean, instead of file path would it be possible to append the project name that the file is related to?

        That way it would be useful and also always reference the correct client.

        Is that possible?

          Hi Brent,

          Yes, sure, I can add an option to display the project name of the
          current document. Will try to get this into the next TreeHouse build.
