Description Tomas Janco 2021-01-28 08:03:30 UTC
The default hotkeys for inserting date and time are Ctrl+~ and Ctrl+Shift+~ on US keyboad layout.
However I use Slovak keyboad layout, where the ~ key actually writes semicolon (;). The Ctrl+~ hotkey is correctly localized to Ctrl+; and works as expected.
The Ctrl+Shift+~ is localized to Ctrl+Shift+; but Shift+; on Slovak keyboard is ° sign and it is a dead key. The Ctrl+Shift+; hotkey does not work and there is no option to set Ctrl+Shift+° hotkey in the list.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set keyboard layout to Slovak
2. In Calc, press Ctrl+~ (Ctrl+key below escape key) to insert date
3. Press Ctrl+Shift+~ to insert time

Actual Results:
Date is inserted in 2., Nothing happens in 3.

Expected Results:
Date is inserted in 2., Time is inserted in 3.

Reproducible: Always

I am in the same situation. I use an arabic keyboard layout. (Ctrl+'), (Ctrl+;), (Ctrl+[), (Ctrl+]) and even (Ctrl+Shift+ any of those keys) doestn't work.
That problem is old.
