Description Jordi 2021-06-27 15:08:20 UTC
After spending months working in Windows with a set of macros mapped to keyboard shortcuts, when I attempted to switch to Linux (or MacOS) and found my shortcuts do not work.

Here is a list of shortcuts that I use that I've found not working so far,

For macos,


For Linux


and under KDE for some reason, 


In fact going through the list offered under Tools -> Customize -> Keyboard, there are many many more. The layout doesn't make a difference. 

I've checked Writer component in v6, v7.0.6 and v7.1.3/4 since that's all I se but a quick look at Calc seems to suffer for similar issues.

Decided to take another look at the Linux situation and see if there was any progress. My system,

Version: (X86_64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 420(Build:2)
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 6.8; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: en-AU (en_AU.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Ubuntu package version: 4:24.2.2-0ubuntu1
Calc: threaded

Found the following not working,


Interestingly, under Tools|Customize|Keyboard, when I press CNTRL+Shift+] to take me to the entry for that key, it takes me to CNTRL+Shift+} (curly brace)! My macros for CNTRL+Shift+[ and CNTRL+Shift+] are mapped and listed above it, but the application is detecting it as } not ]. Other apps are not having issues detecting the key combo correctly.

Likewise, the entries for CNTRL+Shift+. and CNTRL+Shift+, are there but the Tools|Customize screen doesn't jump to them as with the others. Again no issues with other apps.
