To help improving the transition from MS Office to LibreOffice,
implementing the default MS Office shortcuts for the equivalent functions in LibreOffice, would help a lot to increase the UX.

This could be implemented as a easy to select template in the LO options.

Surely the user could it do it themselves, but it is very cumbersome and it makes sense to centralize this work for once and only.

Here's an old thread of another user requesting the same:

While scope here is entire suite, bug 98255 is already open against Calc where we already provide 'legacy' mode (Tools -> Options -> Calc -> Combatibility :  'Key Bindings' drop list.

Low hanging fruit is for Calc becuase of that existing framework.

But potential for 'theming'/'skinning' other modules in addition to Calc against keyboard shortcuts of other popular productivity and DTP programs.
