File | Close, then Close again

Post by mcswell » Sun Sep 27, 2009 1:59 am

Using the keyboard, I consistently have to close a file (using the File | Close menu item) twice before PDF-X will close a file. That is, <Alt>-F C, then <Alt>-F C again. Clicking with the mouse on either the File | Close menu item or the red 'X' button closes it the first time.

I can't believe I'm the only person who uses the keyboard in preference to the mouse, but I didn't see any other mention of this problem. (But the "Search" function on this forum didn't work for me either, so maybe this has been reported and I just didn't see it.)

I just did this with the most recent download, 2.0 build 42.4.

It seems to work sometimes, not always. Something is not quite right with the menus — that has already been reported (and fixed in the next build).

Try Ctrl W instead.

Hello mcswell,

As Bhikkhu suggested try Ctrl + W - just one key combination instead of two - this is more convenient for me :)

As for the problem with "Ctrl + F" then "C" it seems to be solved in the test build I have as it is related to the topic above, but will run some more tests to make sure it is indeed fixed.

Regards,
Stefan

FWIW, this problem is still present in build 44: <Alt>-F C does nothing the first time it's typed; you have to type it twice to close a file.

I do believe that this is only true if I press *and* release the <Alt> key before typing the F. If instead I press and hold the <Alt> key while typing the F (and then release the <Alt> and F keys and type the C key), the file gets closed the first time. That's odd, because the File menu opens the same either way.

Confirmed. Bug is reproduced when Alt is release before F is pressed.
