Hide Full PATH from the top Sublime Merge - GDPR Security Concern - Only display the repository name


For privacy reasons, I need to be able to hide the full path at the top in Sublime Merge and display only the repository name.

In a meeting with share screen I am exposed personal data:

In Sublime Text I fixed this with "show_full_path": false in settings, but in Sublime Merge > Preferences > Edit Settings "show_full_path": false has no effect!

Please consider adding an option in Sublime Merge to hide the full PATH as well, this is a security issue (GDPR).




G’day @mfvbn,

Thanks for sharing this feedback - I’ve just implemented this for Sublime Merge and it will be available in the next build.
