  • Fixed similar bug that caused local media photo thumbnails & previews to disappear after a rotation, if the photo already has print products ordered.

  • Added ability to deactivate the keyboard shortcuts for minimizing and quitting PFK, and for navigating to platform and debug pages. Please contact support@photofinale.com if you wish to set these.
  • Adding logging of all keyboard shortcuts.
