Description boicottms 2013-07-31 10:28:26 UTC
Problem description: 
to paste as link to an other cell, we have to 
1. copy
2. paste special
3. select "paste as link" and
4. deselect many other options
I would like a keyboard shortcut just to "paste as link"

Enhancement
Lowest - workaround exists - not a feature that is used very often, once you do one special paste as link - the option remains so any future special pastes during that session is easy (ctrl + shift + v)

In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.

Thank you and apologies for the noise

I would assume all the common paste special options that have uno commands (only text, only value, only formula) could benefit from shortcuts, as well as those that dont (link and transpose).

Would be useful to have one modifier sequence followed by a letter or number. The most available one i can find is Ctrl+Shift+Alt, though i would have preferred it be Ctrl+Shift, so the shortcuts would look something like this.

Text      - Ctrl+Shift+Alt+A
Numbers   - Ctrl+Shift+Alt+1 or Ctrl+Shift+Alt+N
Formulas  - Ctrl+Shift+Alt+F
Link      - Ctrl+Shift+Alt+L
Transpose - Ctrl+Shift+Alt+T

I don't think its a good idea to predfine a lot of complex shortcuts. Rather we have to make sure that it's easy to bind shortcuts.
(When I have to press ctrl+shift+alt it takes more time than going to the menu.)

In respect to the question here the paste special dialog (shift+ctrl+V) has an option to paste as link (alt+O), which is 'sticky' so you have to change it only once. => WORKSFORME

Predefining shortcuts for calc shortcut users is more useful than having them bind their own shortcuts to these commands. Calc shortcut users use shortcuts over opening the menu. @Cor: whats your take?

Yes the dialog will save your last used option, but that isnt always what you want to do next, and we dont even have a shortcut to apply the last set options in that dialog.

@Samuel: If you are interested in creating the uno commands, there are separate bug reports for that - link (bug 90101), transpose (bug 102255).

I would use those shortcuts (although I am not sure how I would like to learn these).
1) To get rid of links
2) To paste as text from anywhere (e-mails, web, etc to get rid of formatting).

I would do one thing without forgetting the other.

( Working with short cuts is a strange and interesting art. It really depends so much on: how easy do you remember something and how often do you use it - and of course those interact.)

Thus... for people doing certain tasks frequently, it would make sense to have the short cuts available, or at least the possibility to add them themselves .
