Summary: Open Documents dialog: DEL-key should close the selected documents

Description markiewb 2013-02-19 21:59:12 UTC
Created attachment 131585 [details]
Shows the dialog

* Windows->Documents...
* dialog with open documents opens
* select some documents

ACTUAL: closing the selected docs is possible via mouseclick at "close docs" button and its mnemonic ALT-L

EXPECTED: pressing DEL-key should also invoke the "close docs" button (this is more intuitive and easy to implement IMHO)

How would one discover that such a keyboard shortcut is available? It is not a standard key to 'close' a document...

But it is an intuitive shortcut to remove an entry from a list. 
You could also show it in the tooltip of the button.
