Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-09-05 22:52:59 UTC
When adding a custom keyboard shortcut within an app, when that keyboard shortcut is already set in libreoffice global, there should be some type of indication that this shortcut shouldnt be used, possibly an asterisks next to the shortcut key, and there should be a dialog notice when attempting to assign a function to that shortcut key.

Just a small feedback on this, I like the possibility to use a shortcut defined as global in a specific application, if I don't use the function behind. For example, I always define F4 to insert an image in Writer, because I never use datasource in Writer. So maybe an indication that the shortcut is globally used but not that it shouldn't be used.

Yes an indication that it is globally used when assigning it in an app/module, but not that it stop you from assigning it. Hopefully you wont need F4 to insert an image in the future, as in 4.4 it will be a button in the toolbar. :)
