Microsoft Word and WordPerfect have a straightforward keyboard combination for setting small capitals (Ctrl+Shift+K and Alt+K respectively). This is really helpful, as there are many situations in which this is a key formatting element (used, for example, instead of italics). Currently, LibreOffice does not even provide an option for this in the keyboard shortcut editor. Could this be added, ideally with a default shortcut that follows that from Word?

Dear bug submitter!
Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.
To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement
Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.

Hi Sasha, Bug Reporter, *,
Where can I find "SmallCapitals"?
I only can find:
Capitalize Every Word
Which I can find in the Tools > Customize "Format"-category.
For creating small capitals manually in Writer:
Select some text, then Format->Character, tab "Font Effects", element "Effects", variant "Small capitals".
Possible workaround: create custom character style where "Small capitals" enabled and assign it to keyboard combination in Tools->Customize.
Gabor Kelemen committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#38604 Add shortcut key for Small Capitals
It will be available in 7.2.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
