Shortcuts keys have been out for a very long time... But still, that
concept is new and hard to overcome, . . .

I have to show how to do everything with a menu & mouse, because
that is "easier" than remembering shortcuts keys... <disappointment>

I don't buy that argument. I believe people use it, but I don't think it's
being completely honest. How many of them have learned F15 to browse
another member or the spoolfile from their last compile, or F16 to search
or F4 to prompt a command, or <gasp!> F3 to exit? Are these that different
than a shortcut key?

Yes, RDi has a lot more shortcut keys than the function keys, but if
they're running on a PC, they've used PC software and all of it has
short-cut keys available. But if they prefer, they can indeed use the
mouse to click on the menus, icons, etc. By the way, isn't it easier to do
a lot more mouse click, etc. in RDi than using an emulator with SEU?
