Description Regina Henschel 2006-05-12 20:59:22 UTC
In several windows, like 'form navigator', 'navigator', 'styles and formatting'
the special key "context menu" on windows keyboards do not work. So you can
reach the context menu without mouse only by 'shift F10'. This is problematical.
The shortcut 'shift F10' is not marked as used in the customize keyboard dialog,
so people think, that it is free and use it for there own macro. So did the
popular Dmath. If you then need the context menu in the mentioned windows, you
have no access to it without mouse.

I checked with "2.0.2  German version WIN XP: [680m5(Build9011)]" and can not
confirm this problem.

Steps to reproduce (test will also work if you do not follow strictly to all steps):
0. Close OOo
1. on WIN Task bar, push START button
2. Open an new document using
   Programs - OOo2 - WRITER
3. Push "compass icon", if no navigator is visible
4. Press "Headings" in Navigator
5. Press "Menu Key" on keyboard (pls. see attached 'KB_Germany.odg'!)
   Expected: context menu should open (as it does with mouse right click)
   Actual: nothing

If you use 'rightclick' or <Shift F10>, the context menu opens as expected.
It is unintuitive that the 'Menu Key' works in several windows (try the empty
page area in the opened document', but in other ones as Navigator and Styles
Manager it does not
