A way to customize the main application's window title?

I'm on a Mac, and currently switching between 3 different projects.  When I hit Exposé, I'm shown three IDE windows (which, of course, look the same), but the window titles are something like this:

project name - [~/Documents/Programming/project/code] - [Project Name] - .../src/main/java/com/example/projectName/FooBar.java - IntelliJ IDEA 10.5.2


That's a pretty ridiculous title, and the vast majority of the information is unecessary.  It also makes it really hard to tell which window is which, because the screen is full of text.  I know that the first term is the project name, but that doesn't necessarily help when the text is so overwhelming.

Anyway, I'd like to be able to customize it, but I didn't see any options to do so.  Is there a way?  If nothing else, I'd love to be able to remove the two paths from the title.

If not, this would be a nice feature to add to IDEA eventually.

Thanks!

There's no such feature in IntelliJ IDEA. You can add YouTrack request and collect votes/opinions, though personally I don't think it will be of high priority.

That's fine.  I just want to be sure.  It's not something that's worth filing a enhancement request over, at any rate.

Thanks!

If you opened a request for it I would vote for it. I am a Mac user and the same thing has annoyed me as well. It can be hard to find the window you want in mission control (formerly Expose) because of the non-sensical information in the title bar.

OK, since someone else is affected, too, here's the issue report: IDEA-76943
