Summary: CTRL+Z and description boxes

Initial Comment:
Simply follow the standards. CTRL+Z is a standard
shortcut for undo. Either remove all funtionalyty from
CTRL+Z, make its fuction to UNDO or at least give the
user a choice. It is so annoying to be used to a
functionality from every program, and it changes in one
single program.

Secondly, in windows, when I hold my curser over a
contact and get that little description box of the
user, it doesn't dissapear everytime I want it to e.g.
when I alt+tab to another window.

Otherwise, I love your messenger, so please fix those
two, and it would be perfect.

Best regards

Which "last comment" are you talking about? The last comment I can see is
mine which says nothing about looking into anything and in fact
specifically mentions having removed the ctrl-z minimize binding from gaim.
It also states that people who want a ctrl-z minimize binding should look
to their window managers to do it.

The last comment said that this would be looked into, however the status
is closed with no explanation if the key binding was removed, made optional
or is now able to be overridden.  I'm using 2.0.0beta6 and it appears that
ctrl+z has no effect.
Can someone confirm this has simply been removed?
Also, is there any remaining keyboard command to minimize / iconify an IM
window?

I've pulled the in gaim grabbing of ctrl-z from cvs HEAD.
This won't give you your wanted undo functionality but it
will let you use ctrl-z for anything you want. The people
used to using ctrl-z to minimize can figure out how to use
their window manager for that.

i'm going to ignore the second part of this report, as it is
massively duplicate. if you like, you can monitor any of a
number of entries in the gtk bugs tracker, or go directly to
the source in gtk/gnome's bugzilla.

control-z is only "standard" on windows. but windows does
not matter. you will notice that gaim is first and foremost
a unix program. and to say control-z is standard for undo on
unix is just ludicrous.

Dealing with your second report first (by the way one bug in
a report is generally a better idea):
The tooltips not disappearing is a gtk bug not a gaim one, I
don't know the details of it's status but if you check the
gtk tracker, the closed bugs in this tracker, and/or the
forums you will see that it's been discussed an incredible
amount of times.

I'm not sure how safely one could claim that ctrl-z is a
standard for undo (seeing as how I know other uses for it
and other keycombos for undo). However, I agree that gaim
should grab as few keys as is possible without letting the
user override them. As such I will look into removing the
grabbing of ctrl-z from inside gaim (or at least make it
changeable).
