ESC should close popup menus

  • Obs 0.10.3
  • macOS 11.1

It would really make sense if the ESC key closed any popup/right-click menu that happens to be open. This is a very common UX convention on any platform, and it surprised me that it didn’t work in Obsidian. I can’t say for certain, but I feel like older versions (0.9, 0.8?) may have had this?

I think you remember incorrectly. The popup you are referring to are non even selectable with arrow keys.

Open a feature request and be specific on which menus.

Thanks @WhiteNoise I’ve opened ESC key should close various right-click contextual menus as you suggested
