Moving through thumbnails with arrow keys

Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

Moving through thumbnails with arrow keys

Running Linux Mint 17, Lightzone 4.1.0 beta 14

I used to be able to highlight a thumbnail which would then show in the preview window, and then step through the thumbnails with the keyboard left and right arrows - the highlighted thumbnail changing as I did so.  I could also move the highlighted thumbnail to another row with the keyboard up and down arrows. 



In the last few updates (at least beta 13 and 14, perhaps longer) the behaviour seems to have changed on my desktop and laptop.  The left and right keyboard arrows do nothing to the highlighted thumbnail, and the up and down arrow keys work scroll the thumbnail rows, but do not move the highlighted thumbnail.


Is this the intended behaviour?  I really miss the left/right arrow moving the highlighted thumbnail.




Thanks, and happy new year to everyone.

Same thing on windows 7

Last windows version, that supports browsing with keyboard arrows, is beta 12. On linux, I only have 4.0 and latest beta installed, so I can't check previous betas.




@berbmit @Mart Thanks for

@berbmit @Mart Thanks for your reports. I'll commit a fix for this issue today.



Thanks Masahiro

Masahiro: much appreciated ... it'll be a valuable restoration much appreciated by myself at least! 

Selecting layer modes

Selecting layer modes via arrow keys would be great too :-) 

If you speak about blending

If you speak about blending modes, I think changing them with mouse wheel could be nice too.
