Fri Jun 8 08:51:03 CEST 2018

New features

  • Selection can now be renamed (⌃⏎)

Fixes

  • Set timeout for double-⇧ key event (QuickLook) to 0.5 seconds. Prior versions had no timeout which resulted in activating QuickLook regardless of the time passed between two consecutive ⇧ key events.

Changes
