Current tab closed upon single file delete

Post by TheEvilHammer » Sat Oct 15, 2005 5:13 pm

Currently, if you are viewing the only image in a folder in "view" mode, and you delete it, nothing visually happens. This could cause confusion because if the user then tries to perform some operation on the file, such as deleting it again or viewing the file properties, the user will get an error message about not being able to read from disk or the behavior will be undefined.

I propose that if a user deletes the only image in a folder from "view" mode, the tab is closed completely and focus is transferred to the previously used tab.

What do other people think?

:) Hello !

- I agree. And to complete that, I would like that the deleted file be removed from the "Reopen" list too if possible…
• I use to keep that list from a session to the next, and “ghost-files” are there still, this a bit boring…

:mrgreen: Kind regards,
