Description peter josvai 2023-09-01 17:12:34 UTC

just another approach...
in fact, two ... (#3 and #4) to a possible session functionality (reopening documents that belong to a working session)

#3 - - - - - - -
The "recent documents" list could have checkboxes on the left...
and below the list a menu item:

"reopen selected"

I believe that this could be the most minimalistic solution...
still pretty comfortable!

#4 - - - - - - -
I notices that while opening a file from Writer (in Lunux mint)
a right click option is available over files:
"copy location"  (of file)

Copying it makes it possible to 
create a new document and go "Insert / hyperlink" (CRTL+k), 
where we can paste the copied path...

so a list of files can be built manually...
AND to this some little help could be given...

for example:
"send windows list" (list of open documents) to clipboard...


below the "recent files" list  "copy all paths"

or something...

just to illustrate that we're really not that far from having this functionality...
