The keyboard shortcut for inserting the current date is Ctrl + ";" in Libreoffice (Calc). At the German keyboard layout, ";" is located on the same kb button as the ",", but only using the "Shift" key. So Ctrl + ";" really would mean Ctrl + Shift + ";" - but this keypress combination is used for inserting the current TIME.
So Inserting the current date is virtually impossible using the keyboard.
BTW - same goes for Ctrl + ` - this is "Show formula". But ` is not available as single tapped key - you have to press Shift + ' for that - But Ctrl + Shift + ' doesn't work neither.
Better use other key combinations for them. in German.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Calc, place cursor into a cell
2. Press Ctrl + Shift + ";"
3. The current time is inserted
as said. you can't insert date, there is no Ctrl + ";" combination on a German keyboard.
it should be possible per keyboard shortcut. What would be possible: Maybe use Ctrl + "," - if this is not taken already.
