Contact sheet close confirmation
« on: January 23, 2012, 08:18:10 AM »
I often use PM with more different keyboards (on different computers) and I more often than satisfying accidentally close the contact sheet usually instead of changing color codes for the selection what is a great drawback as I have to open the contact sheet again have it loaded and then find what my selection was previously which takes time.

It would be great help and I hope not too much programming to add an option to ask if it was accidental or intentional close of the contact sheet.
Working on Mac, OSX, iOS and with some Canons.
Allways shooting RAW.

We might be able to add that feature after version 5 is released.

Hi Kirk,

IF you implement this feature, may I ask you to implement in such a way the question becomes optional, or can be easily overridden (e.g., by adding the Shift key to the CMD/Ctrl+W combination/when clicking the close button)? When I know what I'm doing, I don't want to be asked for confirmation  ;)

Cheers,
Hayo

If it gets implemented, it will be a user preference.
