Independantly from the key mapping, I suggest that the menu entries
that are alternatives to the same function in the F1 menu, now use
only *one* String (the same as in the F1 menu) and not one for the F1
menu and one for the F2/F3 screen.
As I told several times in the past, it is not possible to find a word
for some functions in german that fit into both (and I think this is
the same problem for some other languages). If using an abbreviation, the word
fits into F2/3 menu, but looks differnt from the (not abbreviated)
words in the F1 menu.
- only one String for F1 menu and F2/F3 menus
- only one one-line string
- scrolling for long strings in F2/F3 menus
If you want to have Strings on more than one line (like now in F2/F3
screens), I suggest a new text-drawing-function that automatically
wraps at spaces.
So we can have only one String in the language files, not two that
represent the two lines from one description.
