Improve Select-All Behavior


I would expect Ctrl-A or Edit --> Select All to select all messages when highlighting one message in a mailbox.

Instead, it selects the name and email address of the contact in the rightmost pane, if that is open, or the title of the message.

Hey folks! There’s a Select-All action in the app, but depending on your keyboard shortcuts it may not be bound to Cmd-A / Ctrl-A (which is odd.) Try * a if you’re using the Gmail set.

We should definitely bind that to Ctrl-A all the time… actually not sure why it’s not.

I have changed the default keybinding, so that Select All is bound to Ctrl+A on Linux and Windows and to Command+A on macOS independent of the mail application chosen as template for the keybindings.


As part of this, the Edit > Select All menu option needs to also attach to “Select All Messages” in the correct contexts.


I have added a bugfix for the mentioned Edit > Select All menu entry to the currently open PR:

This has been resolved and the fix will be included in the next release.

Hooray! I’ve also marked it with the #resolved tag, to distinguish it from stale and invalid issues.
