Description Dennis Roczek 2015-06-27 12:53:29 UTC
Apple uses systemwide command + ? for opening the help. We should od that to and not using F1 as on other operating systems.

Disagree. What Cmd-? does in Mac applications is not opening the help. Instead, Cmd-? opens the help menu and puts the focus to its search field. From that search field, all menu entries can be searched. This works perfectly fine in the current LibreOffice – no need for any fixes.

cmd-? opens the help. Go to the addressbook or in textedit and hit Cmd-?
The help opens for that application. Even Opera Software's Opera12 opens a web page explaining how to use the browser.

In LibO4.4.3.2 nothing happens when hitting Cmd-?

Or did I misunderstood you @j_mach_wust ?

Please add keyword 'needsUXEval' and CC 'libreoffice-ux-advise@lists.freedesktop.org' if input from UX is needed.
