Irritation more than anything else and I have flagged as an enhancement.
Under Fedora 21 (LO22.214.171.124) head to Tools→Options and the shortcut for both Company & Cancel is <Alt>C. This is misleading when you want to cancel (control goes to company first).
I looked at 126.96.36.199 under Fedora and that has the same features as 4.4.
Under XP (LO188.8.131.52) there is no shortcut to cancel.
I have a VM running Centos 6 which is bundled with OOo and version 3.2.1 has the same features as XP.
Would it be an easy hack to allocate <Alt>A as a shortcut to cancel?
I don't understand...
I'm on Win7x64 and if I take a look at "Tools/Customize/Keyboard/Writer" I see that the "Alt+C" shortcut is not assigned to anything.
LOL tools->customize crashes 4.4. I guess that is for another bug report :)
The specific screen I was referring to was tools->Options->LibreOffice->User Data (apologies I should have been more specific). Not sure how to get to Tools->customize->keyboard->writer but "cancel" does not seem to have a shortcut on Windows.
I see my mistake now and I was being too hasty...the "cancel" button is always allocated the shortcut "ALT+C" (on the RPM version anyway). In the case of "user data" "company" is also allocated "ALT+C".
I'll leave this up to the devs to decide whether it is worth allocating an alternative shortcut to "company" (which will then lead to an inconsistency between RPM & windows).

I see no crash under Win7x64, but please file a new report about this telling the exact 4.4 build you are using (copy data from Help/about LibOdev)

please post a screenshot of those shortcut allocations.

Company and cancel both use ALT-C
Tools-Options on Fedora Linux. The buttons "company" & "comment" both use ALT-C
Ok thanks 4 screenshot... now I understand we were talking of different things...
I thought you were complaining of the general settings of shortcuts that you find under "Tools/Customize/Keyboard/Writer"
now I see that the issue is about the keyboard shortcuts to edit the form fields of the <Alt+C> shortcuts ot the "Tools/Options/UserData" where the letter "C" is underlined either for Company and Cancel
edited summary notes to clarify things
I have italian GUI so there's not that issue.
I'll retest this evening with an english GUI

maybe the bug is Linux specific.
did you try installing a more recent daily build?
I'll CC some QA Linux users to CC list as well.
Yup, as noted in the original report...cancel does not have a keyboard shortcut under windows :)
There are a number of dialogs that have duplicate shortcuts with the same letter and pressing the shortcut multiple times goes between them. You can see this in the spellcheck dialog as you have <Alt>C on both cancel and correct buttons.
Hi, confirmed under Ubuntu also. See the workaround indicated by Jay - Set as New - Sophie
