Keyboard shortcut for "Close all tabs" does not wo

Post by mzjn » Wed Aug 03, 2005 9:03 pm

I have configured the F12 key as the keyboard shortcut for the "Close all tabs" command. The shortcut shows up in the pop-up menu, but when I press F12 nothing happens. I tested some other shortcut alternatives too, but they didn't work either.

Hi,

There are 2 actions for which you can configure shortcuts that start with Close All:
"Close all tabs" from the 'Results" category closes all the result tabs (eg: validation error tabs in the south area of the editor)
"Close All" from the "File" category which closes all the editors.

So you probably assigned a shortcut for the first action and not for the second one.

Hope this helps,
Regards, Radu.

Yes, I assigned a shortcut for the first action ("Close all tabs" from the 'Results" category) because that's the one I am interested in.

Now I see that it works, but not completely. F12 does close all tabs in the bottom of the screen when the "Warnings" or "Errors" tab is active, but not when the "XEP" or "Command" tab is active. So there seems to be a problem with tabs related to user-defined external tools.

Hi,

Yes you are right. The problem seems to be that the results tab for the external tools has an editable text area inside which captures the keyboard shortcuts.
We placed a bug for this and a fix will be available in the next version.
Meanwhile you can close any tab by pressing the middle mouse button while on it.

Regards, Radu.

I have to reopen this one: my keyboard shortcut (F12) for closing all tabs no longer works in Oxygen 7.2. It does not matter which tab is active; nothing at all happens when pressing F12.

The bug was once fixed and I have verified that this worked in version 6.2.
