It will be very handy if you assign (alt + =) hot key for autosum as in EXCEL.
This will be very useful as autosum function is used most.
What the heck is "autosum"?
Autosum is not a term in LibO.
We are talking about the function done by the Sigma Σ in the Formula Bar.
I cant see big advantage using such a shortcut, but UI so seems to be incomplete.
We never had a shortcut in LibO, so Version -> 3.3.0
Usability / Accessibility aspects?
The related OOo bug is 45563 - Request keyboard shortcut for AutoSum
Sounds like an EasyHack
Since all new unconfirmed bugs start in state UNCONFIRMED now and old unconfirmed bugs were moved to NEEDINFO with a explanatory comment, all bugs promoted above those bug states to NEW and later are automatically confirmed making the CONFIRMED whiteboard status redundant. Thus it will be removed.
I would also really need this shortcut. I am constantly copying text from test file and autosum the column.
If this is really a "easy hack", can someone please add it to the list:
This request is almost 4 years old. Even the faintest hope is fast fading. Please make this "EasyHack" happen: it will add value to an already great product.

There should be at least more than one way of using "autosum". Or the user should be able to change the way he gets to the sigma icon. I for one couldn't change the location of the icon from the formula toolbar, nor move it to another toolbar, nor move it to a menu or submenu.
If it was possible to move it to a menu or to another toolbar then the user could decide to assign keyboard shortcut to it if he wanted, just like for other commands on the toolbars and menus.
But he should not be locked with the icon in only one possible position and only one way of activating it (by moving the mouse to the formula toolbar and clicking the icon.)
I think you should also be able to change the sigma icon to another one, as I reckon this sigma icon is used for more than one thing.
