Description Lucas Maneos (reporter) 2009-07-28 19:00:12 UTC
SOFTWARE VERSION:
Fremantle beta2, modest 269572150f690858f71dc3a626a84c9a5fec98bb

STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
1. Start modest.
2. Compose a long new message or reply.

EXPECTED OUTCOME:
Some immediately accessible way to send the message.

ACTUAL OUTCOME:
Have to scroll all the way back to the top of the compose window to access the
send button.  After just 8 message lines the send button has scrolled of the
screen and after a few dozen it becomes really slow and annoying to reach the
button again.

REPRODUCIBILITY:
Always.

EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:

OTHER COMMENTS:
A "Send" option in the compose window's menu will do.

We should also note that the CTRL-Enter shortcut will trigger the Send action.

Thanks, that's good enough for me :-)  Where did you find this gem btw?  It's
not mentioned in the pre-installed documentation.

http://www.maemo-guru.com/2009/10/nokia-n900-keyboard-shortcuts-galore/ has a
cool list.

I found it by trying... I remember having used that combination and I tried.

The link Andre posted is quite comprehensive.

Ctrl - Enter

This is the supported way to solve the problem reported. There is no simple
solution at the UI level and at this point we don't want to make changes.
Comment 7 Lucas Maneos (reporter) 2009-10-20 15:19:29 UTC
Ctrl-Enter is perfectly fine on the N900, though it's probably worth
documenting the shortcut in the final user guides.

It might be a problem if there are any keyboardless Fremantle devices in the
pipeline (or for Mer on N800 etc, but that can be worked out downstream).  For
now I'll trust that you know what you are doing and verify :-)
