Description Karl 2022-01-26 07:01:08 UTC

i use the german version of LO. last 7.25, uninstalled and get back to 7.23

if i open OLD writer files, 

a " PI - like " - sign 
    shows the end of a paragraph,
a " like carriage return painting on keyboard "  
    shows manually inserted LINEBREAKS

If i edit this file or edit a new file 

I AM NOT ANYMORE ABLE TO INSERT " manually linebreak ".

MY KEY STROKE Configuration for writer is

ENTER -> manual linebreak
Shift Enter -> new paragraph
CRTL Enter -> new page

kind regards

Actual Results:
manual linebreak is missing

Expected Results:
manual linebreak is NOT missing

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Comment 1 Karl 2022-01-26 08:13:44 UTC

THE ONLY way to insert a manual linebreak is via 
main menue -> insert -> brakes -> manual linebrake

(poor translation from german LO)

Comment 2 Karl 2022-01-26 10:07:55 UTC
As well in LO 7.1.8 Windows 10 x64

Comment 3 Karl 2022-01-26 10:10:24 UTC
Main menue

"Insert" -> Breaks -> manually linbreak

shows CORRECTLY mapping of " enter key " 
like i have configured

IT SEEMs there is just a " mapping " mismatch !

Comment 4 Dieter 2022-02-08 21:19:26 UTC
Karl, does it also happen in SafeMode (Help => Restart in Safemode)? 
Comment 5 Karl 2022-02-09 07:34:09 UTC
i am now running LO 7.3 on Win 10

Hallo Dieter

NEIN, im abgesicherten Modus funktioniert alles.
ABGESEHEN davon, dass dann das Standard layout verwendet ist:

Enter: Neuer Absatz
Shift Enter : Neue Zeile
STRG Enter : Neue Seite

Es scheint, dass ich die Tastatur NICHT umbelegen kann ::
Enter : Neue Zeile
Shift Enter : Neuer Absatz

Guesse ::

In Safe Mode everything is fine :
Except for the Keyboard Setting , which seems to be standard 

It seems, that i cannot exchange functionality for 

Enter / Carriage Return  and Shift Enter / CR

best regards

> In Safe Mode everything is fine :
So the bug is probably caused by a corrupted user profile. Please reset your user profile: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile
Does this solve your problem?

> Except for the Keyboard Setting , which seems to be standard
Yes that is expected, because SafeMode is with a clean user profile

Comment 9 Karl 2022-02-09 10:31:12 UTC

try to have "my wanted changings" in writer,

have " PI - SIGN ON "  to see CR/ NEW LINE symbols in edited text

press several "Enter / CR" several "Shift Enter"
( allways new pararaph symbol is shown )

inser via main menue : Insert -> breaks -> manual line break
( first new line symbol occurs )

Comment 10 Dieter 2022-02-09 11:20:39 UTC
O. K. now I think, I've got it.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Tools -> Customise -> Keyboard
2. Set command "Insert Manual Row Break" to key "Enter" -> OK
3. Reopen dialog to make sure, that setting is accepted
4. Press enter

Actual result:
LO inserts a new paragraph

Expected result
LO inserts a manual row break

Additional informations: Same result with other commands

Hallo Dieter;

meine Englisch ist "basic":: aber ür die Entwickler versuche ich es halt.

Ich wollte NUR, 
"neuer Absatz" STANDARD : Enter


Hast Due es ausprobiert ? Konntest Du es nachvollziehen ?

mfg juergen
I AGREE (as far as i understood Dieter korrektly.


I dont know about SOME HIERACHY of the keyboard to command mapping ...

some REMAPPING might be "vorbidden" as it seems 
Keystrokes might be "libre offisce wide" defined

AS well some "user settings" MAY BE allowed 
to overwrite THE TOP DEFINITION " in a sub - component " (such as writer)

Best regards to Dieter, who CHECKS AGAINST my posting

Yes, I've tested it and could reproduce it with steps from comment 10.
