Dear Libreoffice community,
I just installed the latest version 18.104.22.168 and very happy with it. As a professional designer for almost two decades, I was surprised to see the default Duplicate keyboard shortcut command is SHIFT+F3.
Kindly I propose this to be changed in default to CTRL+D.
Reasons and use cases :
1) The industry wide shortcut is CTRL+D. From Illustrator, to Inkscape to many other similar softwares, this is what you expect. Please note Duplicate is not the same as COPY+PASTE, and in fact the DRAW implementation is quite perfect!
2) Concerning interface design. The so-called "posture" of SHIFT+F3 is secondary, not primary. What I mean by this is that SHIFT+F3 would be more apt for commands that aren't as frequently used. Control+D is more useful to a intermediate and advanced user. Source : About Face: The Essentials of User Interface Design by Alan Cooper.
Thank you for time and consideration.
You can't confirm your own bugs. Moving it back to UNCONFIRMED until someone
else confirms it.
Adding the Desing team to decide...
Shift+F3 to launch the Duplicate dialog is the legacy control for StarOffice/OOo and remains associated Shortcut on AOO, as well as on LibreOffice from inception--in other words no compelling reason to change.
If an Inkscape or Illustrator user prefers, the Ctrl+D shortcut is available to assign on the Tools -> Customize: Keyboard tab of the Draw module or the Impress module.
You can easily customize the shortcuts yourself.
