Everything else about reading my mail from my server seems this same or slightly faster, but that particular function seems to take anywhere from two to five times the amount of time to remove the deleted messages from my folder display. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Reporter, we're now compacting ALL folders, not just the currently selected one as we used to do.
if you want to compact a single folder, use the context menu to "compact this folder". Compact Folders compacts all folders in the account, not just the single folder (the old behaviour was a bug)
Is there any other way to compact the currently selected folder besides the context menu? I have severe hand problems and must use voice recognition to use my computer, so using a context menu is literally a real pain for me. Any chance of a regular menu item for "compact this folder" or at least a command key shortcut, or even some sort of Apple script command that I can automate and connect to my voice recognition software?
That's bug 239154
I don't think my complaint has anything to do with 239154, bug 164746 is much more relevant.
seems like an accessibility problem in general if there's no way to bring up the context menu from voice recognition software, and that should be the focus, not moving things to the file menu. Cc'ing Aaron.
Doesn't Ctrl+space bring up the context menu on Mac? Or are we still missing support for that?
A mac user would have to try cntrl space - I don't know myself.
Yes, that works on the Mac. I can probably put together a few command sequences with that and the change pane (f6) command that will work. Thanks - I guess I never tried that command key combination before. The more I think about this though, the more I think the comments from 164746 are the best - the compact folders command should only compact the folders that were opened in this particular session.
