I would like to know if there is a keyboard shortcut to swap the white box in compare view.

For example, say you have a few images you want to compare. Using the compare view, you get the select on the left, and the candidate on the right. The select (left) has a white box around is. Say you want to keep the selected, but flag the candidate for deletion. If I press X, the selected one (left) is flagged, not the candidate.

I know you can use the mouse to somehow place the white box on the candidate (right), but is there a keyboard shortcut for this?

Hi Shaun,

The backslash key "\" will switch focus from the Select to the Candidate.
