Description Robert Orzanna 2016-04-08 16:28:44 UTC
Dear all,

I noticed that the default keyboard shortcut for inserting a comment in Writer is `CTRL + ALT + C`. 

In MS Office Word, on the other hand, `CTRL + ALT + M` is used as the default shortcut. 

Is there any reason why Writer does not use the same to make it more intuitive for the average MS Office user to switch?

Thankfully,

~Robert

you can define your own shortcuts at menu Tools - customize - keyboard

Sorry, but actual writer users use `CTRL + ALT + C`. If we change it, then these users will fill new bugs :-)

Dear @raal,

Thank you for your comment!

I might consider customising the shortcut or accustom myself to Writer's default. 

I respect the intentional choice then made by the developers to go for a different shortcut than the MS Office folks.

Warmly,

~Robert
