Description vince 2002-07-08 00:44:21 UTC
The Alt-Key should be available in the shortcut assignment too.

UHE->FT: Please have a look, thanks !
Comment 2 Frank Schönheit 2003-02-17 16:32:29 UTC
correcting target. 1.0.2/1.1 Beta does not make sense for a feature request which has not even been evaluated.
Comment 3 ingenstans 2003-04-15 09:09:55 UTC
I'm sure you're right, Frank, but it's a great disappointment. Making the alt key available as a modifier would at a (key) stroke make OOo much easier to customise and so to control. I know there are issues with window managers on Linux, and to some extent on Windows. But users grown-up enough to customise their keystrokes are capable of avoiding such conflicts or fixing them if they suddenly appear. And the uses of the alt key aren't limited to modifying ordinary keys. Being able to make use ctrl-alt and shift-alt combinations is also a great help. So I'm voting for this, though I think it should be a framework issue, rather than a ui one.
Comment 4 Frank Schönheit 2003-04-16 14:34:06 UTC
I really agree that customizing shortcuts including the Alt-key is heavily needed, but that alone doesn't help :)

This just came up on the mailing list agin. by my reckoning, there are five requests for this in IZ -- the oldest is #32. Surely, a decent reverence for such an ancient part of our culture should lead us at least to evaluate the question properly? See also #32 #2547 #4579 #5963 #14391

See also #32 #2547 #4579 #5963 #14391 I'm also going to shift this to framework, where it belongs.
Comment 7 Frank Schönheit 2003-05-22 10:01:22 UTC
not sure if framework actually is the better component, but doesn't really matter. Adding UI's issues list to CC.

Comment 9 ingenstans 2003-09-22 04:11:55 UTC
Is it possible that the patch in #11004 has already solved this?
Comment 10 bettina.haberer 2003-11-12 15:59:26 UTC
Hi Christian, could you please consider this for the PCD 20069? Thank you.Currently there is no hint within 20069 for a possible adding of the Alt-key.
Comment 11 christian.jansen 2004-07-30 14:38:52 UTC
CJ->AS: Hi Andreas. Could we add ALT to the modifyer list?. If not please close the task. Thanks.

Comment 14 Graham Perrin 2008-12-27 14:35:56 UTC
Here in issue 6342 the opening description > The Alt-Key should be available in the shortcut assignment too is comparable with issue 4756 > Expand shortcut possibilities (Use of <Alt> key is not offered) In 4756 there are two mentions of 6342.
Comment 15 mbayer 2009-02-15 14:11:56 UTC
@grahamperrin: You are right. Duplicate of Issue 4756. Please transfer your votes to issue 4756, as this won't happen automatically! Resolving this issue as duplicate, because issue 4756 has more votes (and is prior to this one). *** This issue has been marked as a duplicate of 4756 ***
