Is a simple "/reply" and "/pm" or "/tell" command too much to ask for?

Alt R is so awkward. And I still don't even know how to type a PM to someone directly.

Eh? a /tell is a PM.

But I agree that the game should have /r and /rt like every other MMO, but there are a couple of ways to easily tell or reply, the main one being ALT+R, the other way is to select the little speech bubble next to the chat box, set it to "tell" mode, type the persons name and hit enter, and then every message you send after that will be sent that person without having to type "/tell Cloud Strife" every time.

Edit: Oh and you can also select the persons name in the chat box or in your friends list and open a drop down menu to send a tell like that.

Pushing 2 keys is hard and awkward, but typing 2 keys is not.

Life is hard.

Is there a way? Curious how PC players have to do it. I noticed I have to hit select and scroll to their name on PS3.

I wasn't too sure if this was lacking or still to come since FFXI had a simple feature.
