Im also trying to get used to it. I think its just being so used to muscle memory for the last shortcut it might take some time. This new method could be better once you get used to but I do wonder if its still possible at all to revert to original hotkey if you'd prefer.

I really can't think what benefit for this change! It only given trouble, I thought update should make it more straightforward and efficient...

I personally think it's a bug, not a feature.

Another problem I'm facing is the subsequent image that I open does not group into the same window like it was use to be... Not even I can manually drag it together... Is this a bug too?!

This is really helpful, appreciate! Btw, do you know how to open another image in the same viewing window or drag them together? Thanks!
