Description V Stuart Foote 2013-03-08 15:18:10 UTC
As suggested in a UX-Advise thread

Openening a UI enhancement request to implement a "Clear list" action to the File -> Recent Documents list.

Perhaps inclusion of "Clear list" can be done simply as a port of recent AOO work on the framework::RecentFilesMenuController with SVN for AOO issue

This would be point 2 on the much more substantial UI enhancement to the Recent Documents list proposed in bug 61174

Mark this one as NEW. Legit enhancement request and I saw the emails on UX-mailinglist passing by. Thanks for your research Stuart!

Kind regards,

I'll check if it is possible to cherry-pick this commit.
Comment 3 V Stuart Foote 2013-04-10 16:09:10 UTC
So this has been accomplished with

A File -> Recent Documents -> Clear List is available and functions correctly in recent dailys of master.
e.g. Version:
Build ID: 73cc9fc42cfa524a9965f58092f3a004de3a6b8
TinderBox: Win-x86@6, Branch:master, Time: 2013-04-08_05:35:47

So should be available in 4.0.3

Closing as fixed.

This won't be available in any of the 4.0.* releases. You will have to wait till 4.1.0 to see this feature in a release.

In, you have the ability to individually remove a single document from the thumbnails.  I use it all the time and love the feature.  Thank you guys!

Not sure a clear "all" is even desirable at this point.  Don't think I ever use it.
