Missing the 'close' button
« on: May 17, 2013, 08:18:15 pm »
Now that you have the new MDI interface, the "minimize/restore/close" buttons are now gone.

Also, I like to have the close buttons not enabled on the file tabs, so that more file tabs are present.

So now when I want to close a file, I need to do 2 mouse clicks, I need to right click on the tab, and then select to close the file.

It would be nice if you could bring back a single button which means 'close the active file', so that only 1 mouse click is needed.  Just a small request :)

Tools > Options > Editing > Editor Windows.  The bottom two options select what the editor does on double-click and middle click.  I have middle-click set to close the tab, and it works very naturally for me, because I use that same gesture in Visual Studio and all the browsers I use.

My laptop touchpad does not have middle click but I found out how to make clicking both left+right at the same time to emulate middle click with a registry entry:

This works great, and now I can use middle click in other places as well.
