Description Cor Nouws 2017-05-03 11:51:01 UTC
In Draw, F4 does open Position and Size.
In Writer/Calc that would be convenient too.
For an image in Writer, F4 should open tab Type of the dialog Image (properties)

Currently F4 does nothing in this situation.

Proposed patch for Writer: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/108883
Comment 3 Heiko Tietze 2021-01-13 13:16:12 UTC
Objection to use a precious function key for a secondary command. They are typically reserved for global features such as Help/F1 or Rename/F2.

While P&S might be crucial for Draw it's not for Writer/Calc.
