Description Steve Fanning 2019-12-22 19:12:01 UTC
The Help information for Pivot Table keyboard shortcuts may need updating to correctly reflect the current implementation of Calc's Pivot Tables, using the Pivot Table Layout dialog. In particular:
(1) The shortcuts relating to the Page (Alt P) and Available Fields (Alt+A) should be mentioned, alongside those for the Row, Column and Data Fields.
(2) The Alt+O shortcurt opens up the Options area on the dialog and does not display options for the current field.
(3) The Ctrl+Arrow, Ctrl+Home and Ctrl+End shortcuts no longer appear relevant.

The affected Help page may be found at https://help.libreoffice.org/6.4/en-US/text/scalc/04/01020000.html?DbPAR=CALC#bm_id3145801 (section headed Using the pivot table). Obviously this URL will vary depending on the LO version being used.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Help viewer.
2. Select shortcuts in Index search.
3. Scroll down to Using the pivot table section.
4. Review text against implementation.

Actual Results:
Help descriptions appear to be incorrect as described above.

Expected Results:
Correct descriptions.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Comment 1 Olivier Hallot 2020-02-10 23:50:07 UTC
Labels of the areas have changed (>= 6.4) and are now
Column Fields
Row Fields
Data Fields

And Alt + 'label underlined letter' works. (Added entry for Fields in table)

Alt+O is OK, closes dialog. Removed because of irrelevance in Pivot context
