Bug Description

After opening glipper with ctlr+alt+c the selections at the top should be accessible via keyboard.

One solution could be this:

a: foo
b: bar
c: example
d: oldest entry

I would prefer characters (a...) to number (1...) since characters are easier to access if you do touch typing with ten fingers.

Please ask if you don't understand what I wrote.

Up/down arrow? Or then I didn't understand.

Yes, you are right. I could access any entry without using the mouse.

To access the fourth entry I would need to type: down, down, down, enter.

A way with less typing would be better.

Maybe an auto complete field which search in the last N entries.

To access the fourth entry, in the above example, I could type "ol" and enter.

Please ask if you don't understand what I wrote.

Now I get it and why it would be useful. I think there is even a UI term for that.

Generally seems like the development isn't very active anymore. Last version is (today exactly) 3 years old...

Yes you are right again.

I switched the application. I use diodon since some weeks.

So I don't care much more.

What's the next step?

I think this is the next step: The developers (if there are any) should as themselves: I this project still alive?

If no, please tell this to the audience.

Thank you.
