Description Jesús Guerrero Botella 2011-02-24 16:40:15 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.6.0) 
OS:                Linux

I use the keyboard intensively, even when I am not using a tiling wm ;)

I bound ctrl+alt+h (mimetizing parcellite here) to the klipper menu. So, when I press this combo the menu opens and I can navigate it using cursor up/down to find the item I want to put into the paste buffer.

I press enter to select the highlighted item, but the menu doesn't close, so (in addition to the enter key) I also have to press ESC (or click elsewhere) to close the menu. Then I can paste the item, so I know that klipper is doing its work, but I'd like to avoid this extra step of closing the menu myself.

Is this a intended behaviour or is it something no one else noticed because I am the only keyboard user in the whole kde community?

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
Bind ctrl+alt+h to klipper.
Run the key binding.
Select an item in the history menu of klipper.
Press enter, the menu doesn't close (for me), so you have to press also ESC after that.
Then you can paste anywhere.

Actual Results:  
The menu stays open after selecting an item and pressing enter. This doesn't happen if you click the element instead.

Expected Results:  
The menu should close when you press enter over an item, just like when you select it via left click.

I confirm this for KDE4.6.1 (debian/experimental-snapshots). It would be great if a simple return press would work again to choose an item and close the menu.
