I wish to customize preferred codepage to keyboard shourtcut or to right click menu. Example: CTRL-K - KOI8-R CTRL-W - Win1251 etc. or by right click in submenu. ------------- xxxxxxxx | xxxxxxxxx | xxxxxxxxxxx | xxxxxxxxxx | Codepage -> |----------- -------------| KOI8-R | | WIN1251 | ------------
Hmm, can I mark this one "food for thought"? :))) Marking just M13 for now.
This won't make it for Beta. Put it on the M20 list for later consideration.
It can be smth like CTRL-right click menu (different from "just right click")
we should talk to UI person to allocate 3-5 control key for encoding menu and allow user to customize it. bobj- can you talk to ui folks to allocate it ?

email@example.com, For labeled pages, invoking the Character Coding menu is unnecessary. Have you tried using the View|Character Coding|Auto-Detect|Auto-Detect (Russian) The Netscape Commercial build also includes View|Character Coding|Auto-Detect|Auto-Detect (All) This should make it so that no user intervention is needed. Reassigning the UI request to German.

So? Are we gonna close the bug?
Did my alternative work for what you need? IMHO, we should add short-cut keys to only things that be used frequently by many users. The hope, with the auto-detection feature, was to actually minimize the user interaction with the Character Coding menu. The expectation is that the menu is there when pages are not labeled, not auto-detectable, or mislabeled. Do you think the short-cut key would be used a lot? If not, please close the bug. Otherwise, let's discuss the usability issues. Maybe there are other alternatives. Thanks.
I believe that when the bug was filled there wasn't autodetect yet, or it doesn't worked. I belive this bug autodetect is covered by autodetecting. Tnx.
Closing as WONTFIX. Please file another bug if the autodetection does not work as "advertised"! :-)
