I'm not sure ｗhat a key sequence is called exactly (shortcut? accelerator? mnemonic?),
but e.g. when using Impress with Japanese user interface language on Windows,
in File(F) -> Print(P) -> Impress Tab -> Size(S) area
shortcut keys are not shown, like (of course, written in Japanese)
- Original size(
- Fit to printable page(
- Distribute on multiple sheets of paper(
- Tile sheet of paper with repeated slides(
I found shortcut keys for each are ALT+G, ALT+I, ALT+J, and ALT+K.
So, description of this area should be (of course, written in Japanese)
- Original size(G)
- Fit to printable page(I)
- Distribute on multiple sheets of paper(J)
- Tile sheet of paper with repeated slides(K)
But, in a user interface language as English, it's shown as
- Original si(z)e
- (F)it to printable page
- Distribute on (m)ultiple sheets of paper
- (T)ile sheet of paper with repeated slides
The shortcut keys are different
in English and Japanese user interface languages.
I've reported it to Japanese LibreOffice group:
And, they said the shortcut keys are assigned dynamically.
They guess it's difficult those are matched in every language.
I wish each shortcut key is matched in English and Japanese user interface languages (and other languages).
And, though Japanese LibreOffice group might be responsible for the problem written below, the shortcut keys in Japanese user interface language should be shown clearly.
I've checked the shortcut of 18.104.22.168 beta2 is also unmatched in English and Japanese user interface languages.
(I found the problem of unshown shortcut keys in Japanese user interface language was solved in 22.214.171.124 beta2.)
Few additional comments from Japanese translator point of view:
1) I'm not sure all accelerators *should* be same in each languages,
however such kind of decision is up to each localization team.
2) Japanese translation team want to use same accelerators with English,
but another translators (especially latin-character language users)
might want to use their own accelerators.
3) So better way to solve this issue is remove automatically-accelerator
creation logic and move every accelerators to each terms.
For example, "Original Size" in the report is:
It might be better "Original Si~ze" than "Original Size" for translators.
However, I don't know how hard it will be fixed, or it has historical policy and cannot change. If so, please let us know.
Kohei - any opinions on this one?
I'm just going to mark this as a valid enhancement request, I don't think that it's a bug but could use some discussion.
High (I think this affects virtually every user, worth having a conversation about)
