Shouldn't this say "%MOD1++" (or rather, "%MOD1+Plus") and "%MOD1+-" (or "%MOD1+Minus") for consistency's sake?

comment on Weblate:
Translators: Note that many European keyboard layouts don't have a dedicated ; (semicolon) key. So, starting from LibreOffice 7.0, these shortcuts will instead be %MOD1+, (comma) and Shift+%MOD1+, (comma) for inserting date and time, respectively. For affected languages, see https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/94305
Just noticed that according to Accelerators.xcu, when using US English user interface, Shift+Command+semicolon won't insert current time on a Mac - instead it opens the spelling dialog. And there isn't any other shortcut defined for inserting current time on Mac, either.
Tend to reject the request of more variables. Fine for me if translators change the text completely but if we make everything optional ("Use MOD1% with %COMMA to make %SYSTEM behave %FOO") it becomes a l10n nightmare. See also the discussion in bug 130979 (and other).
If a tip is language dependent and can't apply to most of languages, wouldn't it be just removed?
IMHO, it's not the role of translators to try to deal with these problems but perhaps I'm wrong.
Turning %MOD + +/- into + Plus/Minus sounds okay to me.
The comment 2 was about the keyboard topic "The shortcut is different in my language" and "It depends on the OS/DE".
1. Changed tip into a question.
2. Used %MOD1++ and %MOD1+- to be consistent with appearance in Tool>Customize UI
3. iiuc no change is needed in cui/inc/tipofday.hrc for %MOD1+;
