I've just upgraded from .29 to .38. The performance
seems to have improved a lot, I like most of the new UI
very much.

HOWEVER you've changed the "Mark all Read" keyboard
shortcut from Ctrl-M to Ctrl-Q.

Why's that? I find it very counter intuitive,
especially because I'm left-handed and it requires me
to use both hands now for browsing through the list of
articles. I got used to reading RSS Bandit items
one-handedly I find this a very annoying change of the
user interface.

Please either make the hotkeys configurable (this has
been requested a couple of times and really makes sense
if you want a good interface) or please restore the old
hotkey.

Until then I'm not able to use .38 sadly. :-(

Best regards,
Garvin

    No problem: download the attached file, copy it to your
    Bandit data folder (where you have the subscriptions.xml).
    Open it with an editor (XML), look
    for "CatchUpCurrentSelectedNode" (two locations), change
    the entries to "CtrlM" and "M,Control" - save and you are
    done.

    We planned to include the Shortcut editor application, but
    think we forgot to do so... It also needs some more
    finishing in the UI to get it public.

    For now you can workaround with the attached file as
    described above.

    That's absolutely fabulous. I'm out of time to try it today,
    but many thanks for responding so lightning-fast. I really
    appreciate that! :-)

    Best regards,
