short keys

Postby a user » Mon Mar 21, 2005 6:57 am

Are there difinitions of combined short keys for accessing next unread channel or next page? I know I can use the tool bar or the next page linkage. I just want something easier. For example, if I double click on a page, I would expect it turn to next page if the current channel has several pages, or next channel if the present channel has only one page.

Thanks for the suggestion. it's a good usability enhancement.

This feature will probably come in 2 steps. First the "Open next unread channel" will be changed to "Open next unread page or channel". Then double-click will be added later as part of the mouse gasture enhancement.

suggested hot keys

PageUp/PageDown would be appropriate hot keys for next/previous page. Or simple key like "n" for next, "p" for previous?

Page up/down are generally used for page scrolling. Single character shortcuts are quite difficult to implement correctly as user may need to fill in forms in browser.

GreatNews will provide fully customizable shutcuts later. User will be able to pick up a shortcut sheme most convenient to him.

Thanks.
