8         Although Claws Mail is a graphical application and can mainly be 
9         commanded with your mouse, it also requires the frequent use of the 
10         keyboard. Composing a mail is the most common of the tasks that 
11         require the use of the keyboard. For people who write a lot of mails, 
12         having to move hands from keyboard to mouse greatly reduces 
13         productivity, so Claws Mail provides keyboard shortcuts to allow 
14         faster operation.
15     </para>
16     <para>
17         This not only benefits power users by providing keyboard alternatives 
18         and keyboard navigation, it also enables people with disabilities, 
19         (who may not be able to properly control a pointing device), to use 
20         Claws Mail.
21     </para>
22     <para>
23         The most general convention is the <option>Escape</option> key. Focused 
24         dialogues or windows can be closed by hitting the <option>Esc</option> 
25         key.
26     </para>
27     <para>
28         There are other key combinations which are assigned by default to menu 
29         items. We won't list these here, as they are already shown on the 
30         righthand side of the menus themselves, so you can easily learn them 
31         with usage. Furthermore, if you don't like them, these shortcuts can be 
32         changed on the fly by focusing on the menu item and pressing the 
33         desired key combination.
34     </para>
35     <para>
36         In addition to these shortcuts there are others which vary from window 
37         to window, which are summarised in the following sections.
