An accelerator was added to the 'More' button at the bottom of the toolbar table button drop down in master, but it doesnt work. This was reported by V Stuart Foote in bug 84551 comment 25 and this is a confirmation of it.

1. The More Options button opens Insert Table dialogue.
2. Ctrl + F12 brings up the Insert Table dialogue.
3. Selecting text and pressing More Options automatically converts text to table with no Convert Text to Table dialogue.
4. Selecting a row of text in a table and pressing More Options opens the Insert Table dialogue, after which the text is lost.
5. Individually multi-selecting text in columns in a row and pressing More Options automatically inserts another table.

All of this happens in previous versions.

Hi Gordo,

Unfortunately this hasnt been fixed.

1) Click the 'insert table' button in toolbar.
2) Notice the accelerator underline under the 'M' in 'More Options...' button.
3) Press the letter M

Result: Nothing happens.

There is a general problem of keyboard handling in floating windows. See Bug 76002.

Believe this is more than a GTK2/GTK3 issue as Windows builds are also affected.

On Windows 10 Pro 64-bit en-US (10586) with
