Afterthought: There is one essential command that it not in the menu:
CTRL-g (abort).

If there’s an error or something in the area at the bottom that you do
not want to answer, or if anything else is unclear, just hit CTRL-g.
Everything else can be done via the menu or toolbar or by answering
questions in the field at the bottom.
