Recent File list in Softmaker FreeOffice

In recent document list, LibreOffice has "Clear List" function which eventually clear whole list. We can close each recent document from the start center but it would be helpful if we can close individual recent document right from the recent document list.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a LibreOffice module
2. Go to menubar File > Recent Documents or click small down triangle next to Open icon
3. See the list

You can see the attachment from FreeOffice as a reference

Expected result:

1. A tiny close button in the edge right of each file list

Observed result:

1. No close button in the edge right of each file list

I disagree with right-click interactions on menu items. It's sufficient to remove recent documents per start center.
Comment 2 Heiko Tietze 2020-07-30 14:23:16 UTC
We discussed this topic in the design meeting.

   + right click on menu items not familiar neither discoverable, WF (Heiko)
   + changing features at place make sense (Patrick)
   + low benefit for high effort however => WF (Patrick)
   + disagree with the request too; no app has such a feature in the menu (Sascha)

So let's resolve WF.

Sorry, this is not a right click menu item, this is a standard left click

I do not get this statement.

I can not measure the effort, but the benefit is clear: to help user remove individual document from the recent list. If we depend on Start Center feature for individual closing, so user should close all active documents to get to start center and then close the document. Too many steps to do one things.

An actionable item in the list are available for example in the style list dropdown (see the screenshot attached) although it is not a main menu I admit.
