Bug with duplicate key accelerator (using alt-F)

Postby jek » 09 Nov 2007

The alt key modifier is used to permit the keyboard to select commands.

Pressing alt-F will post the File menu in MC. Unfortunately, the Format menu also appears to use F (i.e. alt-F) as the accelerator which effectively means it can't be selected that way. Perhaps it should use alt-O or some such.

Hi jek,

This is a known issue. We have recently added it to our bugs-to-be-fixed list.

Regards.

Note that in the absence of an API, keyboard traversal with a screen-scraper is about the only way to automate certain bulk operations.

This bug prevents access to that menu in any reasonably reliable way in order to automate things.

Yes, jek.

This bug will be corrected in future.
