Close views from the Switch Windows drop list

Status: Gathering Support

Currently you must open a view to close it. It would save time to have the ability to close a view from the view drop list without having to open the view first then close it. You would select the Switch Windows drop list and have the option to open a view or close one or more views.

Wouldn't the "Close Hidden Windows" button be faster/easier?

@mpwuzhere Not necessarily.  Close hidden windows is useful when you want to close a bunch of windows and only keep one open, but it becomes the lesser of two evils when you have 5 views you want to keep open and 5 you want to close - will it take you longer to open the views you want to close and close them, or close everything and then reopen the views you need?


I'd love a way to "pin" views in the open windows dialog so that I could close unneeded views but keep a couple needed reference views open continuously (such as two floor plans, or a floor plan and a schedule).

You can also type WT which will tile all the windows on your screen....then you can close which ones you want.


If a window is minimized, it won't tile, but you cannot have your windows maximized for that to work.
