Description Terrence Enger 2014-11-20 20:33:00 UTC
In the Tools menu of Writer, "AutoCorrect Options..." advertises
shortcut "A" (by underscoring the first A), but in this menu <Ctrl>+A
and simply "A" cycle between only "Autmatic Spell Checking" and
"Address Book Source...".  My expectation is that the cycle should
include "AutoCorrect Options...".

Setting O/S All, as I see the problem on Windows Vist with LibreOffice

This seems to have started on the same day that "Automatic Spell
Checking" was added to the Tools menu.  Working in the daily dbgutil bibisect repository, I see from `git bisect bad`:

    fdo#82969 Add AutoSpellcheck to tools menu

is it a bug or a feature?
Comment 3 Terrence Enger 2014-11-25 23:34:17 UTC
Michael Stahl asked:  bug or feature?

The back-and-forth in fdo#82969 is about a shortcut key, which would
be effective whenever the user is editing her text.  The current report
is about navigation within the tools menu when the menu is already

I am inclined to think that there is a bug here because the
underscored "A" in "AutoCorrect Options..." tells the user that focus
will go to this option after typing enough A's.  It is a matter of
taste whether one sees the bug in the underscore or in the progression
of focus.  Each other option in that menu advertises a shortcut key,
and all of the these which are enabled in my currently open document
honour the advertisement.

Comment 4 Björn Michaelsen 2015-01-27 17:56:40 UTC
Comment 2 still seems to need a well defined expected behavior for both this bug and fdo#82969.

The problem is gone by daily dbgutil bibisect version 2015-09-03:
AutoCorrect options are moved one level down in the menu hierarchy and
the daily is reachable by shortcut keys.

I am setting status RESOLVED WORKSFORME.
