Details

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #716101 +++

Thunderbird Keyboard Shortcuts documentation (1) currently has two conflicting entries for "Move/Copy again" (slightly rewritten here with streamlined markup, and linebreaks inserted for easy analysis):

= Message functions =
|Move/Copy to previous target folder Again||
{for win}{key Ctrl+Shift+M}{/for}
{for linux}{key Ctrl+Alt+M}{/for}
{for mac}{key Command +Option+ M}{/for}

= Writing Messages =
|Move / Copy Again||
{for win,linux}{key Ctrl+Shift+M}{/for}
{for mac}{key Command+Shift+M}{/for}

Some things are wrong here.
a) Assuming the two entries were originally intended to be about the same function, namely Message > "Move/Copy Message to [previous target folder] Again", the shortcuts should be the same for each OS, but they are not:

We need to verify the following:

1) for LINUX: Ctrl+Alt+M vs. Ctrl+Shift+M
-> on Linux, which one works for "Move/Copy Message Again"? or both of them?
2) for MAC: Command+Option+M vs. Command+Shift+M
-> on Mac,  which one works for "Move/Copy Message Again"? or both of them?

b) On Windows, from Composition, Ctrl+Shift+M does nothing (which seems reasonable, because "Move/Copy Message to previous target folder Again" obviously doesn't make sense for composition).
So I have removed that entry for composition in my upcoming revision.

Maybe somebody can explain the expected and current behaviour for all OS, so that we can fix the documentation, or create bugs as necessary.
