Bug Description

I think that Decorated Windows ( http://elementaryos.org/docs/human-interface-guidelines/ui-toolkit-elements/windows/decorated-windows ) should be closable by hitting the "Escape" key.

A clear example is in the Files properties, Open Files, right click and hit Properties. This windows should definitely be closed pressing Esc.

What do you think?

Ther is also the possibility the user a visual cue about which popup window is currently focused. I believe there is an elegant solution to this , either dimming the closing X or making it smaller.

Sounds like a reasonable feature to me. Doing something about active/inactive states should probably be a different bug ;)

I proposed a branch into Granite to close the window when the Escape key is pressed. That should solve the problem with Files and all other Granite apps.
