Hi,

Yes, we will still evolve the UI. At the very least you will get the
shortkeys directly on the actions.

The answer to your question is in the blog post:
GTSpotter offers an extra action: diving in a category. Pressing
Cmd+Shift+ArrowRight dives in the collection object containing only the
items from that category. Thus, we can continue refining the search inside
the category.

So, you will open the collection of that sub-category and you will see more
items at once (not just 5). Is it clearer now?

Cheers,
Doru
