Mouse-wheel sensitivity seem sto be good now. Reaching the bottom of a page in the browser pane requires a few spins of the mouse-wheel to advance to the next page, or (as I prefer to do) use the right-button + mouse-wheel down trick.

One thing I noticed about using the spacebar to page through the browser pane... Once you click on a link in the browser pane (mine is currently set to open in an external browser), return to GN and the spacebar no longer scrolls through the browser pane.

This is the same losing focus problem we had for a while. Hopefully it will be fixed in this month.

Bug: Every time I open GreatNews the news item pane is hidden. I have to click the divider bar to restore it.

I get a similar thing. I don't want to see all the items like an email client and so I click the divider to hide it but when GN starts again it shows the items.

Also, this version seems a little laggy when displaying the items????? Used to be real quick but since 346 its slowed...

isaacg, can you send me your greatnews.ini file? greatnews@curiostudio.com thanks.

Mordac, build 346 is slower because it needs to highlight news watches on reading pane. Next build will optimize the process to speed it up.

Could we have an option not to display the 'No more unread items [OK]" dialog box? It's rather obvious and an unnecesary click. Maybe you could just have a message load in the browser pane instead.

I noticed that GreatNews makes a ton of htm files in my temp directory in similar to: "~N10_0.htm" and doesn't delete them even when it closes. That's rather untidy for such an otherwise clean filesystem program. Maybe its just a debug feature for betas?

build 347 Cleanup Wizard has an option to delete those temp files.
