Description 17julien 2012-02-15 05:22:30 UTC
The "command + alt + f" shortcut to open the "search & replace" box disappeared in the 3.5.0 MacOSX version of LibreOffice.

In the Windows version (Linux too ?), it's now "Control + H" but "Command + H" (the equivalent on MacOSX) is for hiding the windows of the currently running application (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1343 )

This seems to be broken in more or less all OS and languages. 

Any Idea how we can get a quick solution?

I see this as a localization issue, correct?

It will be available in LibreOffice 3.6.

@Rainer: It is not a localization issue, nevertheless it was good that you assigned it to me, because I knew how to fix it. On German localization Ctrl+H is upper index, there you have Ctrl+Alt+F in all OS. From now on, in other languages than German, the shortcut of Search and Replace is Ctrl+H on Windows and Linux, and Ctrl+Alt+F on Mac OS X.
