I apologise if this is already raised. I sometimes don't have much luck with searches in these forums. :(
I'm trying IDEA 3417 on Windows XP.
With IDEA 4.5, I can press Ctrl-F4 to close an editor window, even if the focus out of the window, e.g. in the Project toolbar, or the CVS output area. This is really useful. With IDEA 3417 it doesn't seem to work any more -- I have to put the focus back into the editor window to close it.
With IDEA 4.5, I can press Alt-F U to invoke "Close All Editors but Active". Now these commands have moved into the Window menu. When I press Alt-W, then U, instead of invoking a command with mnemonic "U" in the Window menu, IDEA opens the Run menu. This behavior with drop down menus first appeared in IDEA 4 or 4.5, I think. Why does it do this?
The second problem with Alt-W U is that there are three commands in the Window menu with mnemonic U:
Store Current Layout as Default
Close All Editors But Active
Close All Unmodified Editors
Perhaps the mnemonics could be reassigned to avoid (or reduce) duplication?
BTW if you haven't guessed it, I'm one of those users who doesn't like to reach around and find my mouse to do everything. I really like it when I can get fast access to commands with the keyboard.
