Suggestion: Add a hotkey to Deselect current Selected Item
Keywords: ui, camera, overview, hotkey
Note: Useful for locking a new target without accidentally locking currently selected item. Could be useful for streaming opsec.
Currently in EVE Online, you can select (and I mean select, not target) any item in space by left clicking it in space or in your overview. It becomes “selected” and is highlighted in your Selected Item window.
However, there is NO WAY TO DESELECT THIS ITEM. If you want your Selected Item to be blank, there is no hotkey or input to do so.
Normally this is not an issue, but in some cases it is. For instance, imagine that you jump through a wormhole or gate, and have the wormhole or gate selected because you Approached it. Now you hear an activation, and want to get ready to lock whatever decloaks. You activate weapons, and hold CONTROL to get ready to target something, and instead you target the Gate because it was the Selected Item. The real target decloaks and gets away.
Please add a hotkey or method to deselect the currently selected item.
