Add icon to remove a file from General > File list

(Sascha Holzhauer) #1

An icon for removing the file from the list would be nice. This is currently only possible via the context menu on the file entry. When the file is selected and I press the DELETE key, the entire entry will be removed (the confirmation dialog leaves it open whether it is about the file or the entry).

Was present in JabRef 2.10, is not in JabRef version 4.0 beta2 on Ubuntu 16.04.

BTW: For links, the remove menu item is grey and therefore it does not seem to be possible to remove links from the file list.

when you hit the DELETE key on the file list, this confirmation should come:

which asks, if you want to remove the file from disk or from the entry:

The confirmation dialog about deleting an entry should not trigger. You may have to reset your keybindings under Options->Customize Keybindings
