Indeed, it can improve the situation. About the size, I think the best solution is to show the last 3 levels. About the implementation, it will probably require to move the 'title' to the Screen as a list.
issue6997 increased window size of new dialogs so it overlaps the whole tab. It has the advantage that users can open more windows without reaching a point where the window is too small, but after some testing I found myself lost. Web applications usually use "Breadcrumbs" <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breadcrumb_(navigation)> to keep track of the path followed by the user. I propose to try to improve that situation by adding something similar to a "Breadcrumb" in the opened windows. For example, if the user is in a bill of materials, and opens the form of inputs, and then opens the product, and then template we could show something like: "Bill of Materials > Inputs > Product > Template" If the user keeps opening new windows we could reach a point in which the text does not fit in the form header. In this case we could show it like this: "... > Product > Template > Unit of Measure"
