In Writer, the keyboard "Czech Programmers" (provided by MS Windows operating system) does not work at all. However, it works quite well in Impress, Calc, Math, and Draw. I tried it using 3 computers with MS Windows 8.1, 64-bit (both SW and HW). The keyboard is supposed to generate Czech letters as ě, š, č, ř, ž, ý, á, í, é, ú, ů, Ě,..., Ů when using Ctrl+Alt+key; for example, Ctrl+Alt+2 generates ě, and so like (I wrote those letters here using just that keybord). Why it produces nothing in Writer unlike the rest of LibreOffice?
I can confirm with Version: 188.8.131.52.alpha0+

tdf#95761 All Hotkeys with CTRL+ALT+ not worked
can you make this test: Use the "left Alt-Key" and NOT the right Alt-Key, and when it works we need a dependency of the language for my patch.
But i not understand why only in writer, this fix, i mean, was for all?!
Right Ctrl + Right Alt works.
Left Ctrl + Left Alt doesn't work.
i have made this fix https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/22611
can you test this, i have tested with German an US
When it works, i would like to make this patch under LO 5.0 and 5.1
have you tested my patch?

Buovjaga says the following details are pertinent here.
On a U.S. keyboard layout, right ALT is ignored when pressed with any other key.
- Affected programs: Calc, Draw, Impress, Math, and Writer.
- Unaffected programs: Base and Start Screen.
- Right ALT + F4 does not close affected programs.
- Typing in Writer is possible with the right ALT key depressed, but not with the left ALT key.
- Pressing and releasing right ALT alone activates menu focus in affected programs, which means LibreOffice at least recognizes the key.

I've changed the earliest affected version here to 220.127.116.11.beta1. I hope this specific information helps.

Does right alt mean something different on these keyboard layouts? FWIW, in bug 97370 the problem is that Ctrl+Alt (left Alt) no longer works, but AltGr (the right Alt key on the US keyboard layout) can still be used as a workaround.

Exactly same observation with 18.104.22.168, using a Greek keyboard: AltGr+E produces the Euro symbol, whereas Ctrl+LeftAlt+E does not (whereas it did in all 4.x versions IIRC).
Is this issue going to be handled by someone, or has there been a decision to leave it as it is?
The solution is evident, revert 3ac9942c624cb627c8b09122498b45b05cf455f6 which only broke things and find another solution for the problem which 3ac9942c624cb627c8b09122498b45b05cf455f6 tried to fix.

problem persist in version 126.96.36.199 (x64) - Writer, Calc, Impress.
Locale: cs-CZ (cs_CZ)
Possible solution: change Ctrl+Alt+Key to another key combination in default.
