When I View the fingerprint Of a item there is a extra space in the middle of the fingerprint making it hard to compare to fingerprints online.

^ | There are two spaces right there

There should only be a single space and fingerprint so that you can compare it to fingerprints online without having to edit out the space.

    Hey jacki,

    This KB-article gives an overview over all shortcuts.

    Note this line:

    ⇧⌘C Copy fingerprint without spaces (also works with x keys selected)

    The double space in the middle of the fingerprint is intentional to actually make it easier to get a visual orientation for all those 4 digit packages of the fingerprint.

    There is also a problem with the way we currently shorten the fingerprint in the side tab that opens after double clicking a key.

    We have a ticket for this problem. I connected this discussion with the existing ticket. That means, should this discussion get closed, it will be re-opened as soon as the ticket is closed. That way you'll stay in the loop and get notified as soon as we have news. Feel free to open a new discussions should you run into further problems or need assistance.

    All the best,
