To get a double underline:
*in Writer type "abc123", select it, type "Ctrl D" -> result: double underlined "abc123"
*in Impress type "abc123", select it, type "Ctrl-D" -> result: no change
*in Draw, create a text box, type "abc123", select it, type "Ctrl-D" -> result: no change
*in Calc type "abc123", select cell, type "Ctrl-D" -> result: deleted "abc123" or no change - not consistent
I would like the double underline to appear, like in Writer. I understand that there may be conflicting shortcuts, but I couldn't see it.
Or perhaps there could/should be an "accounting format" for the cells, where this shortcut would apply
Impress, Draw, Calc, and Writer uses Ctrl+U for Underline (single).
In Writer ctrl+D is defined as Underline:Double.
Calc uses this shortcut for Fill Down (Underline:Double is empty).
Impress/Draw do not provide direct access to double underline (you can apply it via character > font effects > underlining) and haven't defined the shortcut ctrl+D.
The actual question is if a shortcut to double underline in Impress/Draw is really required. And even in Calc it's questionable since you better format the final text in Writer. Plus, ctrl+D is not the best shortcut for this function. So if we go with double underline everywhere it should be shift+ctrl+U (free in all modules).
If we want to have a shortcut for double underline, then it would be ideal to have it consistent across the apps, so if shift+ctrl+U is free in all modules, then that seems like a good choice to use.
Just as a note, i havent found any word processor that has a shortcut for double underline.
I can imagine that a hotkey like Ctrl+<whatever> is more needed for a function #1 in one application while the same hotkey is more beneficial for function #2 in another application.
Different applications have different purposes and the simple fact that both of app#1 and app#2 are capable to do something, it doesn't mean that those functionalities are identically important in those applications and it means even less that the same hotkey should be used.
Thus, I don't think we should obey the same hotkey => same functionality rule.
The question here is that is the double underline functionality such a widely used one that it should have the same hot key or it is not.
In my experience, it is a very rarely used formatting so I don't think I will ever need it. If somebody does then they still can change the keyboard in Tool => Customize => Keyboard.
We discussed the idea in the design meeting and think consistency is paramount. Therefore double underline should be available in all modules, however with a consistent shortcut where shift+ctrl+U is a good option.
Patch has been submitted but for some reason it doesn't work. Question is if shift+ctrl+U should still be used since Gnome takes this shortcut for the unicode input.
For the record, Ctrl+D is the shortcut for "document properties" in some programs, e.g. PDF-XChange and Acrobat.
A polite ping, still working on this bug?
Shift+ctrl+U cannot work since it interferes with ctrl+U, see bug 114010 (containing link to the preliminary patch).

How about short-cut key "Ctrl+Shift+D"

Don't like it as you have to remember another key. But ctrl/cmd+alt+U could work.

Ctrl+Alt+U would create another problem like those in bug #107244 for certain keyboard localizations...
For example in Hungarian on Windows that creates this character: €
