KeyMapping and Tab handling behaviour question

 
Hi, I have some questions wrt KeyMapping and Tab handling behavior.

KeyMapping
==========

1. Do we have any document for KeyMapping feature?

2. The GUI for KeyMapping window is not user friendly imo... So when i click on that button, there is a text box called Category and "Edit" button and i have no idea how can i define a new keymap or modify an existing keymap until i found out that the Category is both a filter and a key mapping button.

a. Should we rename that Category label to something more user friendly?

b. Also, I think it is NOT correct to allow users click on the "Edit" button without defining a key map in advance, otherwise, it will end up with a key action without a shortcut key combination.

Tab handling
==========

Current whenever i double click/middle click on a session (in the session tab), it will automatically clone a duplicate of that session instead of closing. I think it is not consistent with other programs with tab interface, so should we have an option for users to define what action they want for a double clcik, right clcik, middle click action on a tab?

>> Thank you for your suggestion. We are going to make many adjustments to the Key Mapping dialog box before the official release.

>> We finished testing this feature internally. It will be included in the next release.


Thank you for your suggestions/comments on Xshell.
