way to multi-select thumbnails with keyboard?
« on: November 16, 2006, 08:25:48 AM »
I'm using the Windows 4.4.3 version and I can't find a way to multi-select thumbnails with the keyboard.

I tried shift-arrow, ctrl-shift-arrow and alt-shift-arrow to multi-select consecutive images, but no go.
What modifier key am I missing?

I agree...this is a windows-standard selection method that doesn't seem to be there. I often need to select several side-by-side images to edit or rotate or whatever, but must move from the keyboard to the mouse to make the selection. Being able to do the selection using only the keyboard would be productive.

This is true.  It isn't there.  I plan to add that capability at some point.
