Description Kevin Bader 2008-01-14 01:22:06 UTC
Version:           1.0 (using KDE KDE 4.0.0)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs

Newly created folders and files should be selected, because it's likely the user wants to edit the file/open the folder right after he created it.
Also add the option to enter the newly created folder directly using Shift-Enter while creation.
Thank you.

I've just seen that this issue is on the meeting topic for the next usability IRC meeting (http://techbase.kde.org/Projects/Usability/Meetings). As I probably cannot join to this meeting, just for the record: I agree to this request and the newly created item should be selected per default. The shortcut seems also to be OK, but I did not check what shortcut other file managers support.

The reason that this issue has not been fixed yet is that the code for the "new menu" is managed outside of Dolphin and it requires some interface extensions so that Dolphin gets informed when the operation has been finished and whats the name of the newly created item... -> not difficult, but it is not a "I'll fix it in 10 minutes" kind of issue.
