Description R. Green 2020-05-11 13:13:43 UTC
1. Open a Paragraph Style dialogue and navigate to Area > Bitmap.
2. Use the Add/Import button to add a new Bitmap.
3. Now right-click over the newly-created blank area in the Bitmap panel, or over the new Bitmap (but don't select it).
4. Select "Delete."

EXPECTED RESULT: Nothing happens because nothing is selected.
ACTUAL RESULT: The Bitmap thumbnail just before the right-click area is deleted.

What is confusing is that the user may right-click OVER a thumbnail thinking that IT is selected and by clicking "Delete" (in the menu) THAT thumbnail will be removed. NOT SO! The thumbnail BEFORE will be deleted instead.

Suggestions:

1. User must select thumbnail, with a left-click, before right-clicking.
2. Allow the user to use the [Delete] keryboard button as well as the right-click menu—with a confirmation dialogue, of course.

Not really user friendly, indeed

Confirm with and with 5.4

Keyboard request is also valid, IMHO.. but please create a new ticket for that one

I'm not an ergonomics expert but it would be good if you could right-click directly over the desired thumbnail as well.
