Description Robert Wąsik 2014-06-30 17:49:00 UTC
Problem description: it's unpossible to jump from one linguistic error to another. It will be huge convenience, if it will be possible to jump to the next linguistic error with some keyboard shortcut. It'ww be nice if it will be possiible to do it without opening F7 dialog.

Steps to reproduce:
1. set cursor in the middle od word written with linguistic error

Current behavior:
It's unpossible to move cursor to the next linguistic error with keyboard shortcut

Expected behavior:
With keyboard shortcut (optionally with some button from the, while cursor set in the middle of random place in text field, cursor moves to first word (check on the right of cursor) written with linguistic error.

              
Operating System: All
Version: 4.2.5.2 release

I think it would be a good idea as the functionality is already built into the spellcheck. I didnt see such a shortcut key mentioned at < https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/Shortcut_Keys_for_Writer >.

I think a shortcut key for going both back and forward would be good.

I'd propose a broader approach that's a bit harder to implement, but would altogether be more rewarding and powerful: Add "Spelling errors" to the "Navigate by" Navigator feature (also accessible from the Find bar) and have a keyboard shortcut for navigating to the next and previous element, and perhaps for the "Navigate by" pop-over as well.

That way, the user would be able to a) navigate by any chosen element using the keyboard and b) go through spelling errors using the Find bar or Inspector navigation buttons.
