Unclosable panel after deleting a file

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open Graph view
  2. Find a file you want to delete
  3. Cmd+Click open it
  4. Click on the three button menu and click delete

Expected result

The file will be deleted after I confirm the action and the panel would close

Actual result

I get an empty panel with no close controls and a prompt to open a new file, while I want to continue browsing my graph. Panel is closable with a hotkey, but not obvious.

Hi @rsdimitrov . I am having the same issue. If I open multiple pains the “Open a file” remains. What was the hotkey you used to close the pane?

Hey guys, click on the empty pane and use Ctrl/Cmd+W to close it.

If you need to, you can change that key in the settings here:


It worked! Thanks :slight_smile:

Sorted - Thanks!

Thanks, I can reproduce. It’s annoying, I understand.

will be fixed in the next release.
