Description Pau Capdevila 2005-12-07 13:21:58 UTC
Version:           1.2 (using KDE 3.5.0, Debian Package 4:3.5.0-1 (testing/unstable))
Compiler:          Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.14-2-k7

Accidentally (CTRL+SHIFT+R instead of CTRL+R) you can mark all feeds as read and lose track of which feeds you left unread.

wish: Plz change shortcut keys or add undo feature to allow return to previous marked state.

Thank you very much for this great program,

Still an issue.

As of Akregator 5.16.3 (20.12.3) this behaviour is still present, I just made a backup of ~/.local/share/akregator/ and tried it.

I have disabled both Ctrl+R and Ctrl+Shift+R a long time ago to avoid a disaster :)

An option would be to keep the shortcut(s) but show a dialog box confirming that the user actually wants to mark all of the feeds as read, or maybe an inline dialog with a, say, 10 seconds timeout to cancel the operation if a dialog box is considered inappropriate.

I added a confirmation dialog. Maybe undo feature could be borrowed from KAlarm?
