Sample AutoFilter pop-up window. Note how "S" in "Standard filter" is underlined
In all menus, one can press Alt + underlined letter to quickly go to entry of choice.
This does not work in AutoFilter pop-up window. One might expect to press Alt + Letter to sort ascending, descending, open Standard filter window or change state of "All" checkbox, but it is not possible.
Furthermore, Calc *DOES* underline "s" in "Standard filter..." entry, giving user illusion that he can press Alt + s to open this window (see attached screenshot). This is probably caused by copying string from Data → Filter submenu.
Please add such ability.
Please provide a sample document and clearer steps (enumerated work best).
Marking as NEEDINFO - once clear steps are provided and a sample document (simple please) mark as UNCONFIRMED and we'll try to confirm. Thanks

Sample file with autofilter
OK, let me try:
1. Open attached file (or create one and apply autofilter)
2. Look at menu bar of LibreOffice; notice how "o" is underlined in "Format"
3. Press Alt + o; Format menu will pop up.
4. Notice how menu items have one letter underlined. Press Alt + that letter to choose certain option. For example, Alt + p will open Page settings window.
5. Open autofilter window in sheet; in attached document, press drop-down arrow in cell A1.
6. Notice how "s" in "Standard filter" is underlined.
7. Press Alt + s
"Standard filter" option is selected, filter window pops up.
All other menus in LibreOffice teaches user that he can press Alt + underlined letter to select certain option in UI; this way, UI can be used by keyboard only, without mouse. But in this particular case, that method does not work. UI hints user that he may choose "Standard filter" option using only Alt + s keyboard shortcut, while, in fact, he can not.
This should be made consistent. Either Alt + s should open "Standard filter" window, or underline should be removed from "s".
Hi Mirosław Zalewski,
Can you still reproduce with the newest libreoffice version? I do not reproduce with 22.214.171.124, Fedora 20 x86. Pressing Alt+S opens the Standard Filter dialog.
Yes, I can still reproduce this issue using LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 (Build ID: 14ed55896fdfcb93ff437b85c4f3e1923d2b1409) on Windows 7 (x86) machine.
Confirmed. This seems like more of a bug than an enhancement request to be honest. Underline implies ability to open with alt + letter.
Minor - can slow down professional quality work but won't prevent it
Medium - I believe that this could impact people with visual impairment, also for consistency purposes bumping up to medium.
Might be an easy thing to resolve, requesting input for that.
@Miroslaw - thanks for the awesome instructions and sample document
