Hotkeys should be visible in hotlist.
10 hotkeys (0 to 9) not enough. :)
Hotkey should execute according item not only select it.

The good implementation (IMHO) is 'Choose codepage' dialog.

Replying to andrew_b:

Hotkeys should be visible in hotlist.
10 hotkeys (0 to 9) not enough. :)

We has groups for grouping, and user can type [0-9]<enter>[0-9]<enter>.
90 items not enough too?

I think about incremental moving like (S-9 - forward to 9 items),
but I no need it and there is no proposals for it.

Hotkey should execute according item not only select it.

Should not, cause in long list without indexes you can easy mistype.

The good implementation (IMHO) is 'Choose codepage' dialog.

Yeah it's maybe perfect but it has no keys with shortcuts in dialog. ;)
So (in hotlist and any other common case like file copy dialog) we can't use any random key as index.

We should add fast filter for hotlist to navigate ower a swarm of bookmarks,
but it will be in another ticket.

So it's all for now. Please review.
