vi properties window name

Status: New

I'm developing code, and like most people I know, I have multiple VI's open at once.

If I then go and open the VI properties dialog, I lose track of what VI the properties are for, especially if I get an interruption.  I know I can just close the properties window and open it again for whichever VI I wanted (or go to the parent category to see the name), but this could be solved by simply adding the name of the VI to the window title of the Properties dialog.

The VI name is on the page shown when Category = General. If that field is moved to be outside the box with adjustable parameters, either at the top beside the Category menu ring or to the bottom left of the OK/Cancel/Help buttons, it would meet the basic requirements. That is probably fairly easy to do.
