Hi Dieter,

  You can see the full path to your open density map files in Model Panel (menu Favorites / Model Panel).  Use the “Configure…” button on the Model Panel dialog, the Columns tab, and turn on “Input file” as a column.  That will allow you to see which model id number is assigned to each density map.  In the Volume Viewer dialog it shows the map file name and next to it the model id number.  There is no way in Volume Viewer to display the full file paths.
