[Bug 876017] Re: [FFE][UIFE] Window management - We should be able to close windows in spread mode
I found two mentions of Super+W (see below). (I revised the second page
two or three months ago.) But they both relate (mainly) to use of the
keyboard. I could mention in shell-windows-switching.html "From the
keyboard (method 2)" that the user can close a window using the mouse or
the keyboard (and say of course how they do it)? I think that would be
OK. Then we can mark the bug "Fix Committed"?

[FFE][UIFE] Window management - We should be able to close windows in

== Proposed Change ==
Add a small titlebar to each window in spread mode with just a close
button. Allows users to close windows in the spread
== Test ==
None as of yet.
This code is mostly all UI/Rendering code and wasn't exactly testable.
It might be worthwhile looking into writing AP tests for the close
functionality. The two revisions in question are:
I can vouch as the reviewer that the code was written correctly and
functions like the other compiz draw-on-windows code.
== Contingency? ==
We should just be able to revert those revisions. As nothing else is
planned to change on those code sections, reverting them should be
1.Open 3 windows of nautilus or any application.
2. Click on the application's icon in the launcher to activate spread mode.
3. If you want to close one of the windows, you have to click on its preview, than close it when it has focus. However, we should be able to close it directly in spread mode (like in gnome shell) by clicking on a close button in the upper left corner of each preview.
I attached a picture of how its done in gnome shell.
Note from design:
This feature will be added as part of 'The Spread', for more details
