Description Terrence Enger 2016-11-01 18:56:06 UTC
Menu Tables advertises <Ctrl>+<F12> to insert a table.  However this
key combination has no visible result.

I see this in daily Linux dbgutil bibisect repository version
2016-10-31 and in 43-all bibisect repository version oldest running on
debian-stretch.  I thought I remembered this shortcut working once,
but maybe I am dreaming.  For comparison, the shortcut does work in
Windows daily built 2016-10-31.

It works for me with Version:

Please look in menu Table the first item "Insert Table". Which shortcut keys are listed there?

I can't reproduce it in daily Linux dbgutil bibisect repository version 2016-09-18 too. Could you please check the menu as mentioned in comment 1 ? Setting to NEEDINFO meanwhile...
Comment 4 Terrence Enger 2016-11-03 14:50:19 UTC
If I navigate the menus, I can insert a table withou any problem.  Is
that what you are asking, Xisco?

I should have said that I am using Xfce.  Perhaps that makes a

Looking in the Xfce keyboard settings, I do not see that <Ctrl>+<F12>
is being mapped to anything.
Comment 5 A. Barbosa 2016-11-05 20:55:33 UTC
I can reproduce it in xubuntu 16.04 using libreoffice ppa (version 1:5.2.3~rc2-0ubuntu1~xenial1 )
I have ctrl+f12 listed as shortcut but it doesn't work. Menu entry works fine.
Comment 6 Terrence Enger 2016-12-07 02:36:13 UTC
The bug is apparent in debian-stretch 64-bit on xfce desktop in LO
version as distributed with debian-stretch and daily dbgutil
bibisect repository version 2016-12-06.

Based on comment 5, I am setting bug status NEW.  If I have left any
questions unanswered, please ask me again.

it possible system settings for shortcuts makes shortcuts in LibreOffice unusable.

In Kubuntu 18.10 Ctrl+F12 just shows me Desktop instead any actions inside LibreOffice
