Lightbulb Feature Request - more attachments keyboard shortcut.

It would be great to have a select all attachments keyboard shortcut.

(Shortcut help article.)

Often people send emails with lots of small images in the signature and it would be nice to have a quick way to delete them from an email. Also to, as in the title, to select all attachments so the boxes don't have to be clicked one by one. Generally, I want to delete all or nearly all of the attachments if I want to delete any.

Lastly, a preference to automatically delete attachments after they're saved (and ideally note where they were saved to, as in [Deleted when saved to Dropbox/FM-Files/... as appropriate]) would be super cool.

(I tried "* a" but while viewing a message, * does nothing and a is <reply All>.)

PS: I wonder if FM uses deduplication storage/filesystem. There must be billions of copies of the identical Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, etc logos attached to user emails. EMC, NetApp feature, sample page/, etc. Not to mention mass emails - if you can isolate the part that's 100% identical!

To select all attachments, or a range of them, you can select the first one in the range, and then shift+select the last one in the range. I use the mouse to select checkboxes, but I guess most browsers allow selection using the keyboard.

😲 That's amazing! I'm pretty sure that didn't work a number of years ago, and I apparently haven't tried since.

I have wasted soooooo many clicks.
