This is really strange

Afaik all the time the shortcuts Ctrl+F stood for search. I was able to change it, but the change to "navigator" is worse?

Then Ctrl+NUMBER used to set headers, now 1 & 2 are not working anymore. This is a huge issue and I was not able to reset it, as the german "Überschrift x" is not showing when searching for it. Meanwhile, Ctrl+3 etc. are all set as "Überschrift 3" and onwards.

Would be great to change those again if this was not on purpose (which I dont think) or at least help to change it back.

I succeeded to assign "Überschrift 1" ... "Überschrift 7" to Strg-1 ... Strg-7 again. In order to do so, one has to use

Extras>Anpassen>Bereich>Alle Befehle>Vorlagen>Absatz

and search for "Überschrift 1" ... there! Unfortunately, not even "Überschrift" brings you all possible choices below, you have to enter one more space key to have the choice between all of the headings! If there alrady is an assignment for the key combination to be re-assigned, you first have to find out (in the upper left box) what it had been assigned to unassign it first using the "Löschen". Only after this you can assign the wanted key combination by selecting it in the overview of assignments in the upper box and then assign it to the function selected with the two lower triple of selection boxes!

The other inconvenience is that there is no way of restricting the selection to combinations with predefined components - e.g. Shift, Ctl, etc. - but that you always have to scroll through the endless list of all possibilities

It is a bit tedious, but it works. The bad thing is, that you have to do this again for the next development version you want to test until this all has been reverted, as in https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=159709#c19. Unfortunately, in the development version of 2024-02-18, it has not yet been reverted.
