Exactly how is it helpful that Bridge has keyboard number 1 through 9 and short cuts to go through images 1 through 9 of the current folder in current sorting?
Meaning, the purpose of Bridge is to go through your shots and rate or label them. A shoot often has 250 to 1500 shots. If you mistype CTRL-9 to label an image as just 9 (CTRL doesn't click) you LOOSE YOUR PLACE in the current view, and annoyingly go to image 9 out of the 250.
WHEN was it ever helpful to have shortcuts for images 1 through 9 as numbers 1 through 9? WHO ever had a photo shoot with only ten images say, and needed a shortcut to go to image 5 instead of just clicking the image?
