Version:            (using Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources

I'm really just lazy and don't like to reach all the way to ESC when I change my mind and want to close it. This way my hands never have to leave the home row.
Comment 1 zellox 2015-08-19 06:48:39 UTC
Agreed. It should be closable with empty input.
Comment 2 Kai Uwe Broulik 2016-03-08 10:40:51 UTC
Fairly trivial to add I guess, Usability, should we?
Comment 3 Thomas Pfeiffer 2016-03-10 13:29:58 UTC
Makes sense, it's also consistent: When hitting enter, it would close, with or without doing something, depending on what was entered.
Comment 4 Alexander Lohnau 2020-07-13 08:21:52 UTC
What do others think? IMO would be a useful feature, although we might want to wait for the query to finish before closing KRunner, in case we are typing really fast/use the autocompletion and press enter before the results show up.
Comment 5 Nate Graham 2020-10-14 17:20:04 UTC
Now that krunner closes when you press the initial activation shortcut again, I think Robert's initial reason is now satisfied. That said, the proposal also makes sense. Right now hitting enter on an empty text field does nothing; might as well make it do something.
