(L)ook mode - no more SPACE to quit?

It seems I'm turning into the resident (L)ook mode grouch here. Sorry if this has been asked before, but why can't I use the space bar anymore to quit the (L)ook mode? Every other menu, every other mode allows to use either space or Z to quit it. Since the mechanical overhaul to bring it in line with the archery code, the option of using space to quit look mode is gone, and at least for me it's a HUGE bummer.

I don't know if it's an issue in the graphical version, but the ASCII version definitely is affected.

haha i hate that too! i think you can set a config file to make the spacebar the 'more' button. someone with experience in these matters might post how to do so. it's a right pain and i still bash space first before remembering i hae to press something else.

I definitely would like the space bar cancelling to return.
Also, look command behavior is somehow annoying as it will prompt for (more) when you look at lots of items on a given tile.
In that case I don't even get the option to cancel with Z immediately and have to scroll through it.
I'd prefer to do it with space.

Yes, please bring back spacebar cancelling.

I would be greatly annoyed at the lack of this and would thus want it back. +1

Does this need making into an RFE then? I'd like to see it back, and I totally agree with Blasphemous regarding junk piles on the floor.

Fixed: space now cancels the "l"ook mode.

I need to ask Thomas about the item list problem mentioned by Blasphemous.

Space behavior has been fixed. The item behavior has been like this for many years - which doesn't mean that it is great. But please post a separate RFE with an idea on how to improve it.
