I'd like to request a new option be added to the "Mark current article as read" preference. Right now there is "After next unread" and "After short delay".

I'd like to see "Immediately" added. In the interest of speed, I tend to navigate through my subscriptions using the Arrow Keys instead of the space bar and/or mouse. I use up and down to scroll through articles quickly, but then nothing gets marked.

I'd like to be able to have any article that acquires focus to be marked read the moment it acquires focus.

    Steve, although we don't have an option in the preference pane, you can do this right now with a hidden preference. See my comment at <http://forums.cocoaforge.com/viewtopic.php?p=84324> for instructions on how to set it.

    Jeff,

    That's AWESOME!. I was originally debating whether to make this a "mark immediately" or "let me change the duration of the delay". The ".001" is working exactly as I wanted....

    I'll leave it up to you whether to expose this functionality in the preferences panel or not. It's a very useful setting (at least in my mind :)
