close tab

Asked by F. U. on 2020-01-03

first of all, after years, qpdfview is the first program that can replace the discontinued adobe acrobat, thank you. When working with many tabs, it would be useful that close-tab cross would be displayed on the current tab only (like in firefox) so that one cannot easily instead of going to another tab close it. Also I find tool bars unnecessary (I prefer to use only keyboard shortcuts) so it would be nice to switch them off completely in a configuration file. May be even menu bar (File...) would be nice to optionally hide. I had some troubles with duplex printing, but this can be bypassed on cups level. May be pictures for booklet printing are a bit unclear. As for tools I really miss only zoom to selection (I am at 0.4.18 version).
With best regards,

you can already hide the toolbars by right-clicking them to disable all of the three which is persistent. There is also shortcut to hide the menubar discoverable via the settings.

Best regards,

Hi Adam,
sometimes it may be useful to control tool-bars and menu-bar independently. But I forgot one important feature (that Acrobat has) and it is history of views and a tool next/prev view. For example, you click a reference that will you bring from the middle of an article to the end and going back can be waste of time when computer can do it for you.
With best regards,

Hello again,

tool bars, their items and the menu bar can already be controlled individually. We also do have menu items, optional tool bar items and keyboard shortcuts to jump forwards and backwards.
