Description Gregor Petrin 2019-02-11 20:26:45 UTC

The quick document selector no longer selects documents in the least-recently-used order. If I switch to another document, then activate quick selector and press enter, I get a blank document. I should get the previous document, as per documentation at https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/applications/kate/kate-application-plugin-projects.html : "Further, the quick open remembers the previous file. So when you change to the quick open view the previously activated file is automatically selected and you just need to hit Enter, which comes very handy at times."

1. Open document A
2. Open document B
3. Activate quick document selector
4. Choose first option by pressing "Enter"


A blank document is displayed


Document A should be displayed.

I can confirm with kate 18.12.3. No document is selected when quick document selector is activated (ctrl+alt+o), so an empty document is created when we press enter.

Operating System: Arch Linux 
KDE Plasma Version: 5.15.3
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.56.0
Qt Version: 5.12.2
