#9575 closed enhancement (fixed)

Pressing Enter with multiple selection in contacts list should open a window/tab for each of the selected contacts

Reported by: claudiopro Owned by: nobody
Milestone: Adium 1.3 Component: Adium UI
Version: Severity: normal
Keywords: ui list contacts chat window Cc:
Patch Status:

Description

If you select more than one contact from the contacts list (not necessarily adjacent one to another), and then press the Enter key, only one chat window will open, with the last selected contact.

N chat windows, one for each selected contact, should open instead.

I guess nobody ever noticed this behavior since it is common to click on just one contact at a time :)

I personally believe this to be much better behaviour than opening multiple windows. I cannot stand the way finder handles it - if you select multiple files then get info on them, it will open one info window for each file - it's overwhelming and annoying.

Then again, we use tabs, so opening a single window with multiple tabs is not nearly so bad...

I would consider this more of an enhancement.

We should open n chats - following whatever the user normally wants in terms of windows or tabs :)
