I know this is a bad time, since 4.0 was just released, but improvement is an ongoing process.

For the 'recent documents' menu selection under 'file', it would be nice to:
1) allow us to set the number of recent documents, under tools/options.
2) allow us, in the recent menu, to right click and set certain files to 'permanent' so they will not fifo off the stack. An asterisk (blue?) could act as a visual flag.


I remember seeing some packages that allow you to define the number of "recent documents" are kept in the queue. I never seen the "permanent" one, but that would be an interesting thing to have. That way, if you are actively working on editing and updating documents on a regular basis, you do not have them removed from the "recent" list because you were required to do some other more pressing and time sensitive work. I wonder how it might be done.

Also, it would be nice to be able to clear the list from time to time to keep other users of a "shared" system from "snooping" into what work you are doing for others. I knows this might dealt with only using "user accounts" that "point" to user only folders, but I have worked at places where you did not have that ability of keeping your work away from the other users of the system. Even if you used thumbdrives to store the data files, the other users could access the list of files you worked on. Wiping work history would be a good thing for some.
