Can't select "File Special" by keyboard in german version

Post by Ralf Brinkmann » 03 Dec 2014 17:18

I mark same image files (*.jpg) and want to change their "modified date" and "created date" by keyboard. Switched to english language no problem. Switched to german language the menu item in "Datei" is greyed out and not usable. The focus is in the address field now. I have to use the mouse, then it works. Can you please fix this?

For me it would be better if these menu items were in the context menu.

The newest one, 14.60.0200.
I have three windows, the tree window and two filewindows. When I mark some image files in one of these windows and press ALT-D (for "Datei") the menu item "Datei speziell" is greyed out and not available. If I press Escape now to leave the menu, the cursor is in the address field. In English ALT-F (for "file") and then "s" (for "file special") works perfect. The focus is still on the marked files.

OK, got it.
The cause of the trouble is the keyboard shortcut Alt+D.
Solution: Remove Alt+D as default shortcut to focus the Address Bar (Tools | Customize Keyboard Shortcuts... (Shift+F9) / Miscellaneous / Focus Functions / Focus Address Bar).

I will remove this shortcut from the factory defaults.

Thanks!

Works now! Great! Thank you!

I still think it would be a good idea to put this (change date and time of selected files) into the context menu.
