Re: [Evolution] feature request - mark all read hotkey

Interesting. So if I want to add a ctrl-shift-c hot key to the "mark all
as read" label, how would I do that? I found a placeholder for the edit
menu. I tried to replace that with an accel setting (basically copying
the syntax from another menu item) and it broke the Edit pulldown menu
completely. How do I know the appropriate name for this menu item if it
isn't in there already? Any docs on how to edit this file correctly?

Gtk used to allow this in the menus, but with GNOME2 it apparently no
longer supports this. Also, Evolution uses Bonobo menus and that is why
Evolution (as a GNOME 1.4 application) does not support this.

If you want to customise your menu accels tho, you can by editing

Actually while were on the hot key topic, would it be possible to allow
hotkey customization? What would be really slick is if you could pull
open a menu, mouse-over an item to highlight it, then just hit the
hotkey combo you want and it adds/updates the hotkey for that item. I've
seen this done before, but I can't remember where.

Perhaps try using Edit->Mark All As Read???

Yes, Ctrl-I is broken for me too.

But, the Ctrl-A-K-I combination isn't very efficient, especially if you
have hundreds of e-mails in your Inbox. The act of selecting, marking
read, deselecting all takes unecessary time to process.

A hot key for "mark all as read" should NOT be programmatically the same
as ctrl-a-k-i, because there shouldn't be a need for
selecting/deselecting everything. It should be much quicker. Mozilla has
this hotkey, and I really miss it :-)

It's not big problem, but I'd just like it on the TODO list.

IMHO there are much more useful things for the coders to be doing than
combining three simple shortcuts into one.

Like, for instance, fixing Edit->Invert Selection =)  Is there already a
bug report filed on that one?  Anyone?

It would be nice to add a hotkey for edit->mark all as read

It is tedious to select all / mark selected / deselect all, and wasted
cpu cycles IMHO.


I have nothing against the American people...
