When one edits the keyboard shortcuts in Mailspring settings, they cannot add alternative keyboard shortcuts (at least I could not find a way). Take for example the ‘Move to newer/older conversation": by default, it is set to ‘k’ or ‘up’ and ‘j’ or ‘down’, respectively. Now, I wanted to switch the ‘j’ with ‘k’, so I changed it, however, I lost the ‘up/down’ shortcut.
There might be a way to input the alternative shortcut, but I could not find a way. Still, I suggest to add separate, let’s say, text box (like in Gmail settings) for each keyboard settings (i.e. there would be two boxes per each setting).
- OS and Version: CentOS 7
- Mailspring Version: v1.6.1 and v1.6.2
I have tried to add the following lines into
keymap.json, but the new shortcuts does not work (the old one are not overriden by these).
"core:previous-item": ["j", "up"], "core:next-item": ["k", "down"], "core:select-up": ["shift+j", "shift+up"], "core:select-down": ["shift+k", "shift+down"],
And I have found out that for example Alt+Shift+
shift+alt) cannot be assigned as a shortcurt.
