In the calculation module inserting a date should be possible by crtl+; the result of this key combination is an inserted actual time. The SW Version is 18.104.22.168
Open a spreadsheet, select a cell, enter crtl + ;
the actual time is inserted
User Profile Reset: No
The actualdate is expected, this is also shown in the insert menu where 'insert date' has the shortcut crtl + ,

This seems to be a another variant/duplicate of bug tdf#126085 - Insert date: Ctrl+; is confused with Ctrl+Shift+; on many (mostly European) keyboard layouts (de/it/et and more) https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126085
Using 22.214.171.124 with my English(Australia) US keyboard settings, the keyboard combinations ctrl+; and ctrl+: (shift;) are inserting the date and time correctly.
I suspect that the bug behaviour may be due to the reported locale settings:
“Locale: de-DE (en_US.UTF-8); UI: en-US”
The positions of the ; and : are completely different on the US and German keyboards. Shift+: is : on a US keyboard. It would be useful to know what happens Ctrl+: is pressed on the German keyboard. Is anything inserted?
A complete list of the user locale would also be useful.
CRTL+; actual local time
## A complete list of the user locale would also be useful.
if I would know how to get this...
Mit freundlichem Gruss
Many thanks for the quick response. A few things.
(1) Would you please try ctrl+:
(2) Re your locale settings, you need to run the following linux command on a Linux Terminal.
This should display something like:
System Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8
VC Keymap: us
X11 Layout: n/a
I suspect there will be “de” instead of “en”. If you do not feel confident to do this, do not try.
(3) What type of keyboard do you have? German? What version of Linux are you running?

RFr, one question:
- Is your physical keyboard a German "QWERTZ" keyboard, on which you have to use the Shift key to access the ";" character?
- If it is not a QWERTZ keyboard, do you use a QWERTZ keyboard layout in Ubuntu anyway? (This is what I do: I have a physical US layout, but I use a DE software layout because it's better to write in many different languages!)
If the answer to any of these questions is "yes", I am pretty confident this is a duplicate of bug 126085. Your last comment seems to indicate the answer to the first question is "yes".
it is a German "QWERTZ" keyboard
and I use a German "QWERTZ" keyboard.
Thank you RFr, I am pretty confident this is the same issue as Bug 126085, so marking as a duplicate.
Please feel free to participate in the discussion there.
