Help and Menu side buttons on the Datapad

The Help and Menu buttons on the left side of the Datapad screen feel really out of place since they invoke functions that are not part of the game world and can be accessed in other ways if needed. Something more useful could be put onto them instead; my candidates would be Navigation and either Vitals or Inventory, so that you can get to those screens fast no matter where you are in the datapad's screen hierarchy.


There are keyboard shortcuts to switch directly to those screens at any time, even if the datapad is not current equipped.

Inventory = I Key
Documents = K Key
Navigation = N Key
Photos = P Key
Weather = O Key
Vitals = V Key

These are visible in the Help screen. The Help button is also contextual to whichever datapad screen is currently on so it needs to be present on the main side navigation so you can access it from any screen.
