close all editor windows

Postby ctammes » Tue Nov 02, 2010 3:23 am

Would it be possible to add a function to close all open editor windows?
I open each file in a new window and now I have to close them one by one after I finish. A button or function to close all open V editor windows would help ...

You can select Close All from the File menu or press Ctrl+Shift+Q.

You can also customize the key by selecting Customize Keyboard from the Tools menu.

Sorry, I should have known.

But for some reason it doesn't work when files are opened from a zipfile (or temp directory?).
I use V as a viewer from within WinZip (Pro V15). When I have more than one file opened in the viewer, the Close All option is dimmed and does not work. WinZip extracts the file to a tempdir and V opens it from there.

This is the path to the opened file:
C:\Documents and Settings\TammesC\Local Settings\Temp\wzcecb\xMagistraal.Tmp

Unfortunately, opening multiples files from WinZip will usually result in multiple instances of V each displaying a single file - instead of one instance of V displaying multiple files. That is why Close All Windows is disabled.

You will either have to use V to browse the ZIP file contents or enable Minimize to System Tray and Always Use Tray Instance in the More Options section of Preferences.

Doing the latter will cause the same instance of V to be used to view multiple files.
