When to open Help by F1 and search shortcut keys of Writer, you can see the table of them.
There is CTRL+ALT+arrow up/down, which should move paragraph to up or down but it doesn't work in my system.

The question also is - how is possible to move bulleted or numbered paragraph from list?

Verified, we either have to update the help file to remove this or make it functional again.

For second question, I recommend emailing the user list, probably get an answer within a day :)

Marking as NEW and prioritizing

Minor: Doesn't prevent professional quality work, just makes it harder to use a feature that isn't used often. Navigator still an option which works


Low: Not used often, could be just a matter of taking it out of the help pages (if it was purposely removed)

The problem is that by default Ctrl + Alt + Up/Down on Linux is used to navigating workspaces but this can be changed by the user.

On Mac, Cmd + Alt + Up/Down is reserved for extending selection up upwards/downwards. Likely this will be needed to be changed to Ctrl + Alt + Up/Down. @Steve: Can you confirm that the old shortcuts dont work.

<CTRL>+<ALT>+arrow up/down now seems to work properly.
