Description stragu 2021-12-14 12:55:52 UTC
Description:
Bug 141202 added a shortcut to insert a math formula, Ctrl + Alt + =, but it does not work on a German keyboard layout.
The issue was mentioned in Bug 141202, Comment 6.

The shortcut should be localised.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a component like Writer or Calc
2. With a German (DE) keyboard layout, try using the insert math object shortcut. You can try Ctrl + Alt + 0, or you can try Ctrl + Alt + Shift + 0, as you would expect the second one allows you to do the equivalent of Ctrl + Alt + =.

Actual Results:
No math object is inserted.

Expected Results:
Math object is inserted.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

Heiko, could you please try repro it?
Comment 2 Heiko Tietze 2022-01-17 10:38:33 UTC
The equal sign is accessed with the shift modifier. So yes, the problem is clear. And has been reported before (without the equal) at bug 82117. See also bug 115052 for the more generic request.
