Handling "Goto page"-window

Reported by: Batchheizer Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.3.3
Component: Lucide Core Version: 1.3

Description

Please make the "Goto page" window more user-friendly. As default the page-number should be marked, so that the user can immediately start entering a page-number. For example: I press the hotkey (Ctrl+N in German version). I do not want to backspace the numbers or use the mouse to mark them. I immediately want to use my Num-Pad and enter a page-number.

Maybe an option or checkbox "Do not close window" could help browsing through a big document. After every "Enter" the number is by default marked. So the user can browse fast via entering page-numbers.

  • Milestone set to 2.0 and further

Why not use the input field in the menu-bar to browse through large documents? Nevertheless, the page number should be highlighted if one clicks in that field too!

If there would be a hotkey to enter input field in the menu-bar, I would agree. Also the field (in menu-bar) has to be a bit larger for PDFs/DJVUs with more than 1000 pages (for example scanned books from archive.org)

with a spinbutton it's not possible to mark the text. i think we should get rid of the spinbutton and use a normal entry field instead. this could then be marked. would then be the same as with adobe acrobat reader.

what do you think?

If the entry field is can be activated via hotkey AND the number is marked after doing this, it should be a good solution. For example: I will press Ctrl+N and after that only the page-number (no mouse, no backspace etc.). Is this possible?
