Re: [Nautilus-list] Toggling state of 'Open each file or folder in a separate window'

Hi Eloy,

Nautilus 1.0.3, which will be released any day now, has addressed this issue
in a slightly different way. Control-O is always "Open", which matches your
preference in terms of opening a new window or not. Control-Shift-O is the
opposite one, either "Open in New Window" or "Open in Same Window" depending
on how your preference is set. So there are always keyboard equivalents for
doing either one.
