Description Gilward Kukel 2017-01-12 02:40:43 UTC
These keys don't exist on a German keyboard:
; ' [ ] (these characters are created using modifier keys)

This means that the German version of Calc should not use shortcuts with these keys (at least not as the only shortcut of a command). But it does.

Steps to Reproduce:
set the user interface to German

Actual Results:  
Ctrl+; is the shortcut for "Insert current date"
Ctrl+Shift+; is the shortcut for "Insert current time"
Ctrl+' is the shortcut for "Fill single edit"
Ctrl+[ is the shortcut for "Mark Precedents"
Ctrl+] is the shortcut for "Mark Dependents"

Expected Results:
The German version of Calc should use shortcuts with keys that exist on a German keyboard.

My suggestions (same shortcuts as in the German version of Excel):
Ctrl+.  for "Insert current date"
Ctrl+Shift+.  for "Insert current time"
Ctrl+,  for "Fill single edit"
Alt+Shift+7  for "Mark Precedents"
Alt+Shift+6  for "Mark Dependents"

They are all free.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: yes
