Description koflerm 2009-04-08 11:59:20 UTC
Files|Recently used files is the menu command I use most often. For day-to-day
use, I need almost no other menu commands (only shortcuts and them command bar).

Thus, I would love to see this one menu command at a better accessible place,
preferable in a menu or command bar button on its own, perhaps leading to a
dialog where I can choose the file with a single click.

It would also great if the recently used file list would differentiate between
file types (recently used texts, spreadsheets, presentations etc.).

Recently used files should be on the initial startup screen. My usage is 90%+ of files accessed that are previously used.
