I struggle with deleting emails from Gmail via keyboard. Every mail app I used always allowed to use the ‘delete’ key, but not Gmail. It defaults to ‘#’ which just is not intuitive. I tried customizing the keyboard short cut via Gmail’s settings, but you can’t assign the ‘delete’ or the ‘backspace’ key to the shortcut.
So, I tried it with KM. A simple macro that when in Chrome triggers the ‘#’ key when pressing the ‘delete’ key. Pretty straight forward, however, that doesn’t work when editing emails or searching emails. While using another key works, I haven’t quite given up on using the delete key.
My question is, if anybody has solved this problem, or any suggestions on how to detect if I’m editing vs deleting?
Thanks in advance.
