Option to delete open PDF file

Post by kumar » Fri Dec 21, 2018 3:50 am

Hello,
I deal with many PDF files and I cannot tell whether to delete them or not until I view them in PDF Editor. I want to be able to delete the file from within PDF Editor. Is it possible and if yes, how can I do it? This is important because of the time it will save especially when dealing with many files. If this feature is not available then having it would be very helpful. Also adding a rename option would be tremendously useful. If you are concerned about accidental deletion then you can add a confirmation message to prevent accidental deletion. Thanks and please let me know.

If this is implemented - and I've wanted to delete open files, as it's easier than closing them first - it should be only to the Recycle Bin, just in case...!

Thanks Dimitar. I agree that deleting should send to recycle bin, so it can be restored if deletion was accidental.

It was stated previously by your support group in this forum that this feature is easy to implement, so can you incorporate this feature and release it soon. I'm asking for an immediate release because I want to make productivity gains as soon as possible with this feature and I'm sure other users will also appreciate having this feature sooner than later.

Please make it optional. (In case of implementing)

Hello All,

Kumar, while we will certainly consider it, we cannot make any guarantees on the timeline, or promises that the feature will be implemented. It may be true that such a feature could be easy to implement, but we cannot say for certain without hearing from the dev team directly.
In the end there are many things to consider, such as where to delete to, how to handle that deleting, which options should and should not be configurable. We cannot make every aspect configurable for users as that would simply over-clutter our UI and make it more difficult to use for everyone.

OVG, If we do proceed with this, I am certain that there will at the very least be a checkbox to "enable/disable" this function.

Kind regards,

Hi, Daniel!

What do you mean "at the very least be a checkbox to "enable/disable" this function." Option to enable/disable deleting open file or
option to enable/disable deleting to Recycle Bin? I mean the second one. And I support proposal to have ability to delete open files. It would be very nice to have this feature.

Hello Ovg,
Yes that is wha I mean, An option to enable/diable deleting to the recycle bin. If this feature request is accepted, we will almost certainly have an option to toggle that. Otherwise we may simply offer it as a "command" which you would be able to place a UI button for, or bind a custom key to. Depending on the situation and what possible issues we foresee with each method.

Due to the holidays we will not have a good chance to speak with the dev team about this until after the new year, but between Dimitar and Myself, we will be certain to make note in the next company meeting.

A lot of people will certainly be happy with the new "Option to delete open PDF files" (Move to Trash).

Now, the next one: "Option to rename open PDF files" ?

Hello Willy and Ovg!

I am happy to say that, as I mentioned at the end of the thread Willy linked, That feature is certainly in the works and will be coming in the future. Though at this time I cannot say when.

If posting files to this forum, you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded.
