Strange standard keystrokes

Strange standard keystrokes

Like all popular commercial software packages, it has its detractors as well as supporters. Critics emphasize that there are dedicated email clients that are simpler, more intuitive and have a lower purchase price. Proponents emphasize that richer capabilities and advanced programmability are available, that purchase price is a small fraction of total cost of ownership. There remain subtle irregularities in user interface behaviour and algorithms that continue to earn the client some disdain from many day-to-day users. Common criticisms of the product includes:

Notes requires users to select a 'New Memo' to send an email, rather then New Mail.
Many "standard" keystrokes, which work in other mail applications, do not work in Notes. Examples are:
Ctrl->N to create a new mail does not work in Notes, which uses Ctrl->M instead.
Ctrl->R, to create an email reply, also does not work in Notes, which has no other keystroke defined for this purpose.
F5, which some Microsoft applications (Outlook, Explorer, Internet Explorer) use as a refresh key, actually logs users out of Notes. Notes uses F9 as its refresh key. However, Notes's defenders point out that F9 preceded F5 as the PC's refresh key, dating from the days when Lotus 1-2-3 was the PC's default spreadsheet application, and that some Microsoft applications (Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel) have always kept with F9, rather than F5 as the refresh key. Microsoft has also added F9 as a refresh key for Microsoft Outlook with Microsoft Outlook 2003.
