When I select a story in greenhopper it opens in a small panel to the right.
It may be personal preference, but I find this panel a good view but almost useless to use to edit the story or progress it. So I right click and open in a new window.
Is is possible to configure the default action on selecting a story to open in a new window? i.e. Just like outlook I want to turn the reading pane (pain) off.
Every time I forget and click a story it squishes my agile board and I have to then close the preview and then open in a new window - this really interferes with usability for me.
Both actions described do in fact avoid the preview like feature but both open a new tab not a new window. And it does not shift focus to the new tab. But a small search and following your lead I found "Shift - Click" does open a new window, and set focus. This shortcut will make it a bit easier.
But it’s still an annoying feature.
Have you seen that you can pretty much completely customize what appears in the detail view (i.e the preview pane) in recent versions of GreenHopper? To be honest most people love being able to work with the issue without having to leave the board, if you want to edit the story you can just hit the 'e' keyboard shortcut to bring up the edit dialog, if you want to transition the issue couldn't you just dreag and drop it to the right column?
