Shortcut "Next Picture" in batch mode of Change-IPTC

Post by USF »

Hi,
I am using XnView MP MacOSX, Version 0.98.2 64bits (Feb 18 2021)

I often have to change IPTC-Metadata for multiple pictures by going through them individually.
For this I mark the files in the Overview window and open the IPTC editor "ctrl-I". To avoid switching back and forth between keyboard and mouse, it would be helpful if there was a shortcut to go to the next picture. The arrow keys unfortunately only jump to the next tab.
Thanks in advance.

Sorry again. I tried all combinations CTRL/ALT/SHIFT/CMD + arrow... they all just lead to the next TAB

If the focus is not on the tab, the shortcut works

No - it does not work.
Even after clicking from one picture to the next using the mouse, I can't continue to the next picture with ALT+Arrow.
I hope we do not missunderstand each other. I marked 5 pictures, press CMD+I and then I want to go to the next picture with a shortcut instead of using the mouse.
FYI: I already disabled all general shortcuts that use an arrow key in the mac preferences
