Closing the dictionnary

Hi,

I am using the E-book viewer. I double click on a word and press L to open the 'Lookup' (look up in Google Dic, ...).
How can I close the 'Lookup' without the mouse?
I can find an 'x' on the right to close it with the mouse but didn't find a way to close it with the keyboard.
(Linux/Ubuntu 23.10)
Thanks for your help

Thanks for the answer.
Unfortunately CTRL+I does not close the 'Lookup' but opens 'Inspector'.
I suppose it makes sense:I for Inspector.

I confim that CTRL+L closes the 'Lookup'.

Where is CTRL+L documented?

In the viewer preferences under keyboard shortcuts. Or if you prefer actual documentation, in the calibre user manual at: https://manual.calibre-ebook.com/vie...oard-shortcuts

Sans-serif advocates, please take note of the example of ambiguity and confusion.
