Description Michael Weghorn 2018-10-09 10:29:02 UTC
version: master build as of commit 260701270abc7997996625449cd3d40f8b4f7f49
VCL: kde5 on X11 (the gtk3 VCL plugin e.g. works fine)
platform: Debian testing, Plasma 5 desktop

Steps to reproduce:

1) start LibreOffice Writer
2) open the "Tools" menu
3) look at the "Autotext..." entry

Result: The keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+F3) that can be used instead of navigating through the menu is not displayed.

Expected result: The keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+F3" should be shown next to the menu entry.


* The keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+F3" works as expected, it's just not shown in the menu.
* The keyboard shortcut is displayed when using e.g. the gtk3 VCL plugin.
* Other KDE applications, e.g. Kate, also show keyboard shortcuts in their menu.
