I am using multiple RViz2 instances simultaneously with the same configuration file but in different namespaces. The instances are started with ros2 run rviz2 rviz2 -d my_config.riz

I now have a problem distinguishing the started instances because all have the same title in the window my_config.rviz - RViz.
The help for Rviz (--help-all) gives the options

  • --title <title>
  • --qwindowtitle <title>

Unfortunately, these options have no effect. enter image description here

I found a solution by branching RViz2. RViz2 shows now the used namespace in the title frame. A Pull request was filed under https://github.com/ros2/rviz/pull/1073 enter image description here
