Description drch 2018-04-03 15:01:46 UTC
1. Libreoffice for Mac should support "ctrl+key" as shortcuts. This would extend the range of possible shortcuts.
2. "alt+key" should be avoided (for Mac): alt+key are characters like € and should not be used as shortcuts (use ctrl instead (see above))
2. There should be "prefix" keys like "ctrl+p". Then "ctrl+p,0" could be used for the "standard paragraph", "ctrl+p,1" for a paragraph with intend etc. (this is supported e.g., in MacWord

Actual Results:  
cmd+c, cmd+v are system shortcuts, should not be redefined by LO
alt+e=€ is an extended character, should not be used as shortcut

Expected Results:
works as described

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
alt+key should be avoided (because overloading of character set)
ctrl+key should be used instead
prefix-key should be supported (like ctrl+p)
OR: alternative: sequences of two keys should be supported (like ctrl+p,x) for paragraphs, ctrl+f,y for fonts etc.

Customization of Ctrl has been added recently and will be available in 6.1. Some shortcuts got improved, see bug 78777, but if some are missing please file extra tickets.
