My single suggestion...

As you might have noticed, I haven't been on the forums lately, and frankly, it's because KM is a very fine web browser.

Of all the stability, small size, and features, I ask for one thing, and if I'm asking the wrong people, just point me in the right direction. smiling smiley

I'd like a feature to move a layer into it's own window. There are so many times when this would come in handy it hurts, but I don't know squat about macro language, so I can't do it. smiling smiley


Thanks for KM, dev team. smiling smiley

Hmm, I just do "File - New Window" in open layer (I have a hotkey conflict with Ctrl+N and I'm too lazy to fix it), then close that layer in the old window.

"I haven't been on the forums lately, and frankly, it's because KM is a very fine web browser" - doggoned if that isn't my excuse for long absences too. Nothing to bitch about. Darn! ;-)

- though I do have one teeny-tiny one in Bug Country... but only because I love K-M and want to do everything with it.

The following macro (ALT N keyboard shortcut) closes your current
tab and opens its url in a new window. You have to edit accel.cfg and macros.cfg.
Just open them into Notepad and make the following changes. These files
should be in your K-Meleon\Profiles\default\??????????.slt directory.

Open accel.cfg and add the following lines:

%ifplugin layers
ALT N = macros(open_tab_as_win)
%endif

Open macros.cfg and add the following lines:

open_tab_as_win {
$tmp=$URL;
plugin(layers,"Close");
opennew($tmp)
}


I chose Alt-N because it wasn't in use in my system.. As well you could choose another Cltr or Alt letter combination. Look at access.cfg what keyboard bindings are available (not previously defined) if you don't wan't to use Alt-N. You can also
add this macro into your menu if you edit menus.cfg

Thanks for the macros. I've already used them more than a few times when I surfed into a page which could benefit from having an exclusive tabbed window(20 links, 20 tabs. No waiting for the pages to load since I've already spent time reading the first -- it's great!)

I tried changing the menu so when I clicked on the layer menu I could choose it as an option, but it's not doing it for me. sad smiley

layers(macros(open_tab_as_win), &Layer to New Window)


Is that right?

Hi SJ Zero

Great that you liked it. Try this. Just replace the following block (menus.cfg):

%ifplugin layers
&Layers {
layers(Config, &Config)
layers(Open, &New Layer)
layers(Close, &Delete Layer)
-
layers()
}
%endif

with this text block:

%ifplugin layers
&Layers {
layers(Config, &Config)
layers(Open, &New Layer)
layers(Close, &Delete Layer)
%ifplugin macros
macros(open_tab_as_win, &Layer to New Window)
%endif
-
layers()
}
%endif

I did something very much like that based on another script I saw on another forum here. I also altered the right click menus a little to streamline my web browsing. They're deceptively small now. smiling smiley

Thanks again for the help.

After I fix the browser...It's started not saving cookies. sad smiley

I'm stuck using moz until I've figured out how to fix it.
