Quick index defaults to first index

I have two indexes for a document. Using Quick Index, I select the text I want to index in the document, I select the second of the two indexes in the dialogue box, click Add Record, then Add Record & Mark to create the index entry and mark the text. Fine. But when I go to select the next item of text in the document, I find that the index in the dialogue box has reverted to the first index, so I have to reset it for every new entry. It would help if the dialogue box kept the same setting until intentionally changed.

What I would really like to do is select the text in the document and then simply press a shortcut key to immediately add the entry to the index selected in the index pane. I have been unable to add a shortcut key to Insert > Index > New Entry & Mark on the menu.

Or am I missing something?

Regarding the issue with quick index not maintaining your last selection. Looks like a bug, we will fix that asap.
Regarding not being able to set a keyboard shortcut to Insert->Index->"New Record & Mark", you should be able to add a shortcut via system preferences. Go to Keyboard/Shortcuts/App Shortcuts, click the + button, select Mellel and then make sure to enter the full menu item name: "New Record & Mark" (simply copy and paste from here if you wish to make sure you get it exactly right). I was able to setup this menu item with command+shift+control+N without an issue.

Thanks. I couldn't get the shortcut to stick on my iMac but it works OK on a different machine.
