Key binding to mark replied mail as read

Reported by Ken Ficara | November 29th, 2016 @ 05:01 PM

Based on a reply on this accepted feature request I created ~/Library/Application Support/MailMate/Resources/KeyBindings and in there created ReplyMarkRead.plist containing this:

  "@r" = ( 'setTag:', '\\Seen', 'reply:');
  "@f" = ( 'setTag:', '\\Seen', 'forwardMessage:');

Then in Preferences/General, I checked "Enable" for "Custom Key Bindings" and entered ReplyMarkRead in the text box below. But Cmd-R still doesn't mark messages read. Any idea why the binding isn't working?

    • State changed from “new” to “bluesky”

    Unfortunately it's not possible to override existing menu key bindings. Technically, it's likely very tricky to do this (although I cannot claim I've looked into the details). For now, you would have to use something else, e.g., simply r and f.

    The “bluesky” state means that I don't really oppose that it should be possible to override menu key bindings, but I don't have time to look into it in the foreseeable future.
