  • Command “I” is just plain WRONG….

    Posted by David Battistella on July 12, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    So I wrote apple this feedback request:

    Copy paste this text and send it as prodeuct feedback if you agree with me.

    I’d like to suggest you reverse two commands in the main interface.

    I believe that COMMAND “I” would be better suited for file import because there are many more types of files imported throughout a project, audio, music, graphics, etc. Where camera import usually only happens at the start of a project.

    I have found myself looting at my isight camera many more times than I have wanted to.

    So my request is that you make COMMAND “I” a file import command and SHIFT COMMAND “I” an import from camera command.

    I am a complete dork!

    I just changed it.

    So don’t send feedback just use the command editor.

    Hey Dave,

    The complete dork is the one at Apple that put importing to “CMD+SHFT+I” as the default to begin with. LOL.

    [David Battistella] “I’d like to suggest you reverse two commands in the main interface.”


    I started on this one the first day I got the app, seems ass-backwards to all of us.

    but David for the record- iSight is dead- it is a Facetime camera now… < Snicker >
