I know I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth, but seriously. Why no CTRL-F4
support to close an open document. Only CTRL-W.
Seriously. What's the deal. Is this a HUUUGGE problem? Or are you just trying
to torture us Windows users because we use Windows and don't use Linux and we'll
learn to love linux because we FINALLY get in the habit of using CTRL-W to close
documents. If the software I wanted to run would run on Linux, I'd switch in
a minute. Ever try to play "No One Lives Forever" on Linux? Or "F.E.A.R"? Or
Half-Life 2? Or run CorelDraw? And don't tell me the alternatives on Linux are
just as good. Even if they were, I already know how to use these apps and like
them just fine, thanks very much.
So, I'm a Windows user, I would much rather use Linux, but again, the software
I want to run doesn't run on Linux.
Please implement standard Windows keystrokes, like CTRL-F4. Seriously. Notepad++
is a Windows program. It runs on Windows. It uses a lot of the fancy built-in
controls that are included in the Windows OS. If you're all about the Linux,
encourage the use of the keyboard instead of the mouse, and you might make command
line nerds out of all of us yet... but let us use the key combos we've been
using for, oh FIFTEEN YEARS, and don't force us to change, please. Seriously.
The F4 key on my old IBM 101 key keyboard (NO frikkin' windows keys) is isolated
at the right-end of the row of function keys. Easy to find without looking.
W is crammed in the middle of other keys, where I might hit CTRL-Q or CTRL-S
or whatever else. CTRL-F4 is out of the way, and if I accidentally hit CTRL-F3,
nothing bad happens. I don't want to learn to use CTRL-W because it's not a
particularly user friendly keystroke.
Great product, but this lack of CTRL-F4 support just pisses me off a little
every time I use it. I feel like Oliver Twist in the orphanage, asking for
more gruel. Notepad++ isn't tasteless gruel... but I feel like asking for CTRL-F4
is going to get "you should be happy how much effort the developer puts into
this project!!!" and I truly am.
But WHY still no CTRL-F4 support. Why?
