I love my mouse.
I think that the old days, when people exclusively used their keyboard in order to communicate with their computer belong to the past.
The man who invented the mouse was a genius and made the life of all of us a lot easier.
However, every now and then I catch myself using shortcuts in order to perform a task.
(In fact I am using quite a number of them right now…) Not that I could not use my mouse for the task – it just takes a lot longer to do so.
In fact, I have had times (even in 2004) where a mouse was not only more complicated, but not at hand at all.
Either because there was none, or because my computer did not accept the fact that it physically was there.
I guess computers just ignore the real world at times…
One of these events gave me the idea to unplug my mouse and use SAP Business One without one.
I imagine that there are realistic business scenarios where a mouse is not desired or too slow.
Imagine my surprise when I could not go much beyond the menu screen.
If i have not totally misused the system, it is virtually impossible to control the menu via shortcuts only.
Whereas any other major application I know of can be controlled mouseless, SAP Business One can not!
I don’t know about you, but I consider this a major flaw in a great application.
I hope this gets fixed soon…
Sorry, not invoices today, we have no mouse 😉
