Hi Teresa,

Pre-overdues exist in 1.6, but they're configured differently than
before.  I'm not familiar with setting them up, so hopefully someone
else will chime in.

Mostly because it was redundant and we have limited space there.  Are
you a mouser?  The emphasis has traditionally been to cater to
keyboard users, though that can change given demand.  The button bar
now scrolls if needed, so we could add more buttons, but if you're
forced to scroll to reach a button, that's probably just as bad as
having to drill through a menu.

For keyboarders, pressing F1 is the quickest way to exit out of a
patron's display while preserving the tab for the next patron.  For
Checkouts, Alt+D will trigger the Done button in the lower-right for
printing a receipt and exiting out.
