Re: Format Menu

While the keystrokes "Alt + O + P" and "Alt + O + B" open the Page Format and Bullets Format dialogs, respectively, the hotkey combinations do not work for opening Paragraph, Character, and Column formatting dialogs.

The following hotkey keystrokes fail to open their respective formatting dialogs:

"Alt + O + H"
"Alt + O + A"
"Alt + O + L"

These broken hotkeys are unfortunate as I use them intuitively and extensively, so much so that I have reverted back to OpenOffice for the time being.  

Help! and Thank you!

Sorry, NAB the assigned mnemonic accelerator behavior is correct.

Simply that on a drop list with repeated use of an accelerator--the _required_ behavior is to stop at the item on the drop list but not launch it--otherwise the next item(s) would be unaccessible. 

For these duplicated mnemonics actual launch is with the enter key.

Alt + o + H is the accelerator for both Character and Anchor
Alt + o + A is the accelerator for both Paragraph and Rotate
Alt + o + L is the accelerator for both Columns and Flip

For critical accelerators or short-cut conflicts we have removed duplicate assignments--but that is not required here.
