Needs to be consistent with:

Changes to the menus:

This will also require some reconfiguration of the menus. As they are now, the Collection menu is too cluttered. Here is a proposal.

Biggest change: Separate sharing related functions into a separate Share menu.

Issue: Menu items must have one underlined letter for fast access on Windows and Linux. This is called keyboard mnemonic. This means, among other things, that a menu entry should not be completely dynamic (otherwise makes it hard to make the sortcut). The shortcut should not change if the text in the entry changes. The top level menu shortcuts must also not conflict with detail view shortcuts.
