As most of you know, the Hannover release of Lotus Notes takes Lotus Notes and makes it into a big plug-in to Lotus Expeditor (the IBM version of the Eclipse rich client platform). In doing so, we continue to encounter Lotus Notes features that may or may not have particular value to re-implement in Expeditor.
Today's issue is the user preference for allowing a right double click of the mouse to close your current window tab.
Do you use it? How many of your business users use it?
To be perfectly honest, I am inclined to drop this from the Hannover client. Here is the rationale:
We are trying very hard to ensure that everything is KEYBOARD accessible, because some folks have a hard time using a mouse. And indeed, most advanced users tend to keep their hands on the keyboard rather than the mouse. Samantha ( and advanced users) will still have the following ways to close a window tab:
- Click the x on the tab
- Choose File - Close (or ALT - F - C)
- Esc key
I think that's enough.
