Description liquidfractal 2015-12-25 01:16:17 UTC
Before upgrading to LO I had created a custom Shortcut key where Ctrl+Alt+F would insert a Foot/Endnote.  Now that I've upgraded, I notice that it still works but seemingly ONLY with the left Alt key.  Simply:

LEFT Ctrl + LEFT Alt + F = works
RIGHT Ctrl + LEFT Alt + F = works

But no combination with the right-hand Alt key will bring up the footnote menu.  Previously, any combination of Ctrl+Alt+F worked just fine.

tested with CTRL+ALT+P (CTRL+ALT+F insert "[" in my version)
left CTRL+left ALT+P works OK
left CTRL+right ALT+P doesn't work 

This seems to have begun at the below commit.

tdf#95761 All Hotkeys with CTRL+ALT+ not worked
Comment 3 Juergen Funk (CIB) 2016-01-11 09:52:32 UTC
Hi raal,

i would look to 2a3691801f605674bb3e0b5996c12f869da32009 but is not valid?!

But the problem is on the german-keyboard it is diffrent between the left-ALT and the right-ALT, the right-ALT is called "ALTGR" and send (under windows) automatically "ALT-CTRL", an for my patch that was always masked out (only under windows), my patch make now a diffrent bwetween the right and left ALT.

Here i have try to change https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=95635 and i have try to descript a little bit the problem (sorry for my bad english)

But i think we must refactor the Hot-Key-Handling, at the moment it not work properly for the any language-keyboards, and OS, but for the right Chars it works, but not for the Hot-Keys

@Juergen: As per bug 95761 is this "works as designed" and should be closed "WONTFIX"?
