Re: Using space bar to select

NOTE: The original poster came back and modified their question about using the space bar into a spam message. That has been dealt with, but this topic still has merit, even without the original post.

1.9.x is multiple years old - the 1.10 series came out in July of 2016, and 1.10.8 is current as of November 2017. It's not a "decimal version number", so 1.9 is less than 1.10.

That said, keyboard select/deselect requires the active text cursor to be in that particular window. If you can move the highlighted line up and down with the arrow keys, the cursor is there. TAB key should allow you to move between windows, or you can click on the left window with the mouse to move it there.

I was actually thinking about posting about this the other day.

Love this feature and I always use it to make navigating and selecting faster, but it's only "half" useful.

This info applies to 1.10.8 when using Windows XP:

- If you click your mouse on the part of the line with the # of chapters and file size, clicking the spacebar DOES NOT toggle the checkbox.

- However, if you click your mouse on the word "Title" beside the checkbox, now the spacebar will work for toggling the checkbox.

In both cases, the entire line is highlighted, and the arrow keys work... it's only the spacebar that doesn't work both ways - and it would be really great if it could!

(The same principle applies to the nested items, such as audio tracks and subtitle tracks.)
