      OK, here's what I found: There does not seem to be an expressed command to "insert filename." However, there is a command to copy it into the clipboard.

      You can do this:
      1. Go to Preferences|Tools|Keyboard
      2. Under "Types" select "File"
      3. Under "Commands" select "Copy Name"
      4. Map it to a convenient key (e.g. CTRL+SHIFT+C)

      Whenever you need to insert the file path, you'll need to do two keystrokes: the one you mapped to the "Copy Name" command and "CTRL+V" for paste.

      For extra convenience, you could combine these in a keyboard macro, and Bob's your uncle. :)

      I still think it'll be useful to have an express "Insert Filename" command, so I will submit a feature request to Sangil.
