Description Juergen Funk (CIB) 2016-03-27 17:26:33 UTC
Under windows you can change the keyboard layout per application, when run LO it is possible but the HotKeys would be only init in the start phase here http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/vcl/win/source/app/salinst.cxx#333, and not reinit the HotKeys. 
The advantage of this feature is you can use the english Key-Layout and the HotKeys, for example CTRL-[ works under german key-layout when switch to ENglisch.

here the patch https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/23556
Comment 2 V Stuart Foote 2016-03-28 03:07:33 UTC
Hey sounds great--but if it passes code review, the feature will need documentation. And of course it is preferred, and helps for maintenance, if the same could be implemented for OS X and the Linux flavors in addition to Windows.

And, while it would be great if it is as simple as resetting elements in salinst.cxx and salframe.cxx and restarting--it kind of seems like the profile may need more care and feeding than just that. But I'm no dev.
