Summary0009206: Too many function for ESC key
DescriptionNow ESC has at least three functions (that are using very often):
- it closes many various windows (well, focused one);
- it deselects frames;
- it switches Scribus to "select item" tool.
It grabs too much attention to look everytime at layout condition and guess what ESC key will do.
Suggestion: ESC shouldn't close palettes and similar windows. Usually ESC closes dialogs that prompt user for something and close by itself after user choice, but not that are static. Static dialogs should be opened/closed by their shortcut keys.
Steps To ReproduceOpen properties palette (PP). Enter some values in some field. Press enter to apply values. Now you expect to be finished with PP. But it still active.
