I have added the USABILITY keyword.
I tend to also add the A11Y keyword but as I understand it, it is only for
issues related to the US act asking that all new software is accessible.
Still, I consider it an accessibility problem - the need to target a small
square is pretty difficult for people with not so good eyesight.

It should be possible to close all kind of tabs with a middle-mouse-click. Currently this only works for documents in
the editor but it should work esp. for tabs in the output window, too.

has to be treated specifically, thank you.
Don't know why to make noise by closing this issue and opening another one. This issueis exactly about closing tabs, not
only about closing editor tabs. So it was most appropriate. But here you are:
Thanks. output tabs are different implementation owned by other engineer and I don't know much about it, that's the reason.
