Adding you as opportunistically, being the one committing the patch. Don't think the author will fix this (Philippe Jung)
Comment 4 sdc.blanco 2020-12-29 13:03:14 UTC
This is a documentation bug.

Look in Tools > Customize > Keyboard  under Ctrl+Shift+{Arrow Up,Arrow Down}
where you will see that these keys correspond to move Page (Slide) up (or down).

If you add a few empty slides to your test file, then you can use these commands to move the first slide up and down.   (i.e., nothing is broken)

Your bibisect simply found the intended change in 5.1

Changed is needed here in documentation:

The attached screenshot is the proposal for the patched help page

The Ctrl+Shift+Arrow keys work in the Slide Sorter and Slide Pane.
