Years ago this basic item got removed, or overlooked. Every time I update I hope for it's return.

You Right Click on missing (or any) footage and the browser appears to find the location of the replacement file. It used to have the file name at the top that you were looking for. But not you need to revert to the file you clicked on in the Project Window, which is fine, but... it's not right where your concentration is (especially if using multiple monitors).

If you repeat this task numerous times, trying to compare long names with minor difference in the file name, it's ANNOYING.

Premeire has this at the top, why donesn't After Effects?!

Plese fix this BASIC function!

In addition, your Project Window may not be fully extened out to show the full name of the file. So you need to cancel the prompt, stretch out the window, repeat, then return the window to how it was, then repeat next time. Stupid.

It probably has a lot to do with changes in the relevant system APIs. No idea. I can't even remeber how it used to be in the olden days since I rarely used replacement.
