I live in Spain and use Spanish keyboards to write and teach Portuguese here. Spanish keyboards don't have a specific key for the diacritic ~, which is heavily used in Portuguese over vowels. Usually, using Ctrl+Alt+4 (or AltGr+4) and the desired vowel is the most fluent and convenient way of writing Ã ã Õ õ in this case. Ctrl+Alt+4+a is the way I am writing ã in this webform and it works perfectly.
Suddenly, in new versions of Writer (I don´t know when exactly it started) the combination Ctrl+Alt+4 opens the "Navigator" side panel (it's maybe called the "Browser" side panel in English? Sorry, I use the Galician interface) and I can't get the diacritic on my vowels anymore.
I tried to customise the keyboard shortcuts, but this particular shortcut is not listed, so I can't delete it (unlike Ctrl+Alt+5, which is listed, for example).
This problem prevents me from writing Portuguese and using LibreOffice for my lessons.
Please, is there any solution? Thanks in advance for your help.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. On a Spanish keyboard, I use the combination Ctrl+Alt+4 (or AltGr+4).
A side panel opens.
I would like to use Ctrl+Alt+4+vowel (or AltGr+4+vowel) to get ã, Ã, õ, Õ, as it used to be (and still is in other platforms).
User Profile Reset: Yes
Trying to customise keyboard shortcuts didn't help, as Ctrl+Alt+4 is not listed as a shortcut, unlike Ctrl+Alt+5 wich is listed as a shortcut for opening the "pages panel", for example.

This is the side panel I get with Ctrl+Alt+4 in Writer (Galician language interface).
Isn't this the same as bug 151082 ?
Not a bug for me.
Choose menu Tools - Customize - Keyboard, and switch from Writer to LibreOffice (upper right corner), then you will find Ctrl+Alt+4 for NavigatorDeck (delete for there).

Please, retest, and tell us here. Thanks.
Thank you very much, LeroyG, it did work. I realise now it's maybe not a bug, but I would have never found a solution without your help. I am even thinking of sending this information to certain forums, as there's a big community of people who write Portuguese on Spanish keyboards over here, in Galicia.
Rafael Lima: yes it is the same case as bug 151082.
