Searching in koreader file browser: no back button?

When I am browsing the books in the file browser, sometimes I just want to go back to my reading but I don't find anyway to go directly back. My workaround is to go to the hamburger menu and select 'Open last document'. There is no back button or am I missing something?

Your "workaround" is the best way for that now, what we used to do is poke the top item in the History listing.

Everything's a trade-off. If this is something one would expect a back button to do, and I'm not sure that it should, I think it might well be more like:

- back page
- back folder
- back folder
- reopen document

PS A back button is something I'd like to have in the file browser. But I always thought it'd stop at the "first" location.

It seems, to me, like there is pretty good navigation in the browser, that includes logical procedures to move through the file structure, in both directions, within the browser. To provide for a "return" that jumps out of the browser, fits the "'Open last document" option's description. Perhaps somehow having a "Return to last document" in the first Browser menu (current tab)? Don't know if it would be worth the effort, for going from three pokes to two.

Luck;
Ken

But I think that we must be in consideration not only the number of pokes but also the logical operation for an intuitive functionality.

I second that

why not one poke, with a command similar to the actual Home icon

I am pretty satisfied with how it is now, but I guess you might like adding a couple of Frenzie's new Radio Buttons, to the long press option for the home button? The default being go to the current Browser home and one be a Return to last document. They would set the action that a poke to the home icon provides.

Luck;
Ken
