[Bug 1492481] Re: Feature request bug - show files behavior


I'm not sure they would consider it upstream, as they have different
goals then when the program is closely integrated into Ubuntu, I would
say it is a ux papercut for using it in unity, or other Ubuntu desktops
when launching from a file manager.

  Feature request bug - show files behavior

Status in file-roller package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I don't see a reason that the main application should stay open after
  "show files" is clicked.

  Wouldn't a more intuitive behavior be to close the archive browser
  when you choose to show files?

  I'm not complaining, and it's certainly not a deal-breaker for using
  file-roller, but it does seem like a needless window after a
  particular option is clicked unless there is a delete archive option
  after you click through to browse contents.
