Keyboard control of lists

Postby dane » Sat Apr 02, 2011 9:28 am

Hi All

I'm using v6b7 and am quite happy with the new GUI and functionality (such as how quickly large numbers of listings can be deleted or loaded for display). A couple of quirks with handling lists that I'd like to point out.

In the main display window you can control whether you get a full listing or compact view with keystrokes (right or left arrow - opens or closes full listing) in addition to clicking on the arrow gadget to the left of the listing. However, if the focus is in the middle of the list and you click left arrow, the listing closes, but the focus does not return to the top of the list - it gets lost in top-level listing and is focused on a different post entirely.

In the download window, these keyboard commands don't seem to work at all - the only way to expand a compact listing seems to be by clicking the arrow gadget.

Keep up the good work fellas,
