    You can set Kate to show the full path. But I'm not sure what you mean. I don't see "places", see a Documents tab, when clicked it displays all open files, if desired with full path (I don't use that since half of my screen estate would be used by the paths.

    In the plugins bit of kate, there are two "Explorer" type plugins. Both are decent, but slightly different from each other. Both will display a tree of folders (rooted at any arbitrary folder, ie / or /home/foo/my_project) in a sidebar on the left (or wherever). Give them a go.

    You can have both enabled at once (you get a different tab for each), or just enable the one you like best.

    that's neither Kate nor Kwrite.
    That's the KDE file manager.

    I don't think it is possible to show folders rather than places.
    You can show folders rather than places in Dolphin when it is opened standalone if that is any help.

    In Kwrite in upper left corner there is "places" and a cross.
    Untic that.

    In upper right corner there is Options (a monkey wrench),

    In there you can put it back.

    I'd imagine in those cases you would have been using KDE 3.xx with konqueror as the default file manager.

    What is the relationship between the file manager choice and the subroutine which presents the file organization tree in the "save as" menu : None.
    There are a lot of app which show the directory names rather than the place names.

    as I understand it (and I don't profess to be any kind of expert in this area so could be wrong) is that the open / save dialogue in Kate and Kwrite (as with most KDE apps) is provided by kdialog / kfiledialog. In KDE 4.xx this resembles the default file manager in appearance (dolphin) and in 3.xx series resembles the default file manager (konqueror).

    As you can see - when called from within Kate or Kwrite there is no option in kdialog to achieve the view you want. The only option to adjust the view is to have places or not to have places.

    I seem to recall that what you are trying to achieve may have been possible in KDE 3.xx (but again could be wrong) but I have not seen it in KDE 4.xx (at least 4.7, 4.8 and 4.9)
