Other Options menus

Certain Options menus are accessed in ways other than via the Options softkey. Use of these menus is similar to the normal Options menu. Examples of such menus are:

Menu Description

Context-sensitive Options menu

The Selection key opens this context-sensitive Options menu when there is no single intuitive function (such as opening the item in focus) for it.

The context-sensitive Options menu only lists functions that:

  • Affect only the item in focus.

  • Could be regarded as potentially intuitive.

  • Are competing for the topmost place of the menu.

Other functions can be accessed through the Options softkey. The number of items in the context-sensitive Options menu is usually two or three; it should never be more than four. For example, in a message editor, the functions in the context-sensitive Options menu could be Send and Add Recipient.

If there are marked items in a list, the context-sensitive Options menu should include the Mark/Unmark functions. When a list is empty, it may make sense to offer a Create New type of option in the context-sensitive Options menu, but only when it would be an appropriate function in the context.

Editing menu

Opened by pressing a certain key combination (depends on the device) in a text editor. Contains only editing commands.
