Description Martin Schovanek 2002-06-05 12:32:25 UTC
XML and CSS modules provide a lot of document nodes. Problem is some of them produce only Edit or Open action to open document. It's uncomfortable if user selects mixed group of nodes in Explorere window and want to open them. He cannot because the popup menu has not either Open or Edit action. I would like to suggest to use Open as primary action on all nodes and Edit as optional.

It means that Open should always open text editor.

Another possible behaviour is that Open delegates to most appropriate action (one of Edit, View, Design GUI, Edit XML Tree, ...). It would be user selectable which one is the most appropriate. Impl problem is that it requires boilerplate logic of removing particular approptiate action from menus, replacing it by the open action.
