Single Key Shortcuts

Photo Mechanic is my favorite tool for sorting pictures, and I'd love to see a little change that would improve til great tool even more. 

Today you have two options for Single Key Shortcuts. These:

0-8 sets Color Class

0-5 sets Rating

I would suggest you combine these two with a limited selection of Color Classes with a third option:

0-5 sets Rating, 6-8 sets Color Class

Thank you for a great program and the support for iOS picture files!

That's an interesting suggestion. I'd like to hear from other users as well. If you'd find this useful, please vote on this feature request.

More essential than useful. Indeed I ditched Photo Mechanic at v5 in part because there was no way to circumvent ctrl-1-5 for star ratings. When you're whittling down 000s of files, that's a huge amount of unnecessary and inefficient finger dancing.

I was delighted to see that this had changed in 6, but astonished to discover it's now single key for star rating OR colour class! -- this seems a really curious decision.

So I agree with Ole. 1 - 5 for star rating, 6 - 9 for user definable colour classes. Please! Thank you!
