ttrss – marking articles as read

One of the most important features of Tiny Tiny RSS and equivalent services like Feedly is the option to mark articles as read, and sync that state to all your devices. You’ll always know what you already have read and what’s new.
With the latest release the Windows app for TT-RSS now has one more option to mark articles as read.
As there are now two ways to automatically toggle the state and several manual ones, I want to give a quick recap here.

Let’s start with the automatic ones. You can both enable and disable them on the settings page.

Mark as read when scrolling through headlines: If this option is enabled articles are marked as read while you browse through the headlines. Everytime you scroll, the app checks if items move out of your view at the top. You’ll notice the text style changes from bold to normal. If there are no more articles to append to the list (e.g. in Fresh articles) all items are marked as read.

Now to the manual options. I’ll jump through the different views of the app to enumerate all possible options:

feed context menu - mark feed as read

feed context menu – mark feed as read

Feed menu: On any feed (special and normal) you can right click / tap and hold and a context menu pops up to mark the whole feed as read.

Headlines view: On the top you have a tool bar. Tapping the three dots (…) will also display the option to mark the displayed feed as read. You can also enable multiselection for the list which will add a toolbar to the bottom of the headlines list, that contains a button to toggle the read state of all selected items. And not to forget the quick actions introduced in 4.1.0.

Article details view: Again there is a toolbar on the bottom to toggle the read state of the shown article. And when using small screens (mobile or small sized window) you have the option to mark all items of this feed as read.
