A keyboard equivalent for the option to Match Case would be a time-saver. I suggest alt-M or alt-C.

My hardware description is a guess.

set the desired keyboard shortcut settings LibreOffice.

it is not a bug and not a wish, and reluctance to use the simplest things in the program

"Match Case" is not on the list of shortcuts. It is not customizable.

Please see above paragraph. I'm setting this back to UNCONFIRMED.

I'm pivoting this report a bit :)

I noticed in 4.5 the "M" of "Match Case" is underlined, indicating that "Alt-M" should activate it like in menus and dialogs.
"Alt-M", however, does nothing.

I'm setting this to NEW.

It should be noted, that there is a design team proposal to make the Match Case option a button: bug 81740 (thanks Octavio for the find).
Yet, perhaps that future button could be shortcutted.

I don't want to upgrade to a version not provided by my distro, openSuse 13.2 in evergreen mode, but I have LO 5.0.4.2 and tested Writer with a new document, both unsaved and saved, with a string of letters. I tried to find one or another of those letters, with case matched or not, with the Find's Match Case option visibly supposedly operable by alt-m, but alt-m did nothing. Find worked, but not the option unless I manually checkmarked it with the touchpad.

My distro includes LO 6.2.7.1, I keep my distro evergreen, and you're still offering 6.2.7 along with 6.3.1. The problem in 6.2.7.1 is the same.
