Description TorrAB 2019-03-04 02:13:38 UTC
In the Writer Find&Replace window, the keyboard shortcut ~r for Replace does not work; clicking Replace does. (The shortcut ~x does.)

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open aaa.odt
2.^h: search for 'a', try replacing with 'b'
3.'a' found; hit ~r (alt r), or 'r'. Nothing happens.
4. Click Replace: 'a' becomes 'b', next 'a' found —as expected.

Actual Results:
see above

Expected Results:
see above

Reproducible: Always

Click or <enter> while on the Replace button will perform the replacement. But action of the accelerator seems disconnected. It will toggle between the Replace button and the Find Next button--but not perform the replacement. 

Contrast that with the ~l for an "Replace All" action which applies correctly.

Comment 6 Gabor Kelemen 2019-03-08 10:00:16 UTC
This happens because the r accelerator conflicts with the "Diacritic-sensitive" check boxes accelerator.

Using a unique one for the latter box would solve this; for example s does not seem to be used.

Also the accelerator for Comments checkbox and the Close button (c) also conflicts, causing the same problem.

I may confirm the issue for LO
Previous LO 6.2.5 accelerator worked fine
