Although it works in writer, in presentation when you press "alt", the "file" menu does turn blue, but when you press F (or E, or V...) for the File (or other) menu to expand. The closest you can get is press alt, down, esc, esc, down, then navigate the menus via the arrow keys. I first noticed this in 2.0.3, when it tended to screw up a lot when I used the mouse, so I avoided using it as much as possible. Luckily 2.0.4 is more stable, but I still like to press alt, f, a instead of clicking file > save as. I was able to reproduce this problem on another computer (albeit both were running Windows XP home 32); I haven't checked it in anything other than presentation (in which the problem occurs) and writer (in which the problem is absent). - RG>

Curiously ALT and after that pressing F or A, V ... does not work. Pressing ALT +F does work here for me (might be a workaround for you). Might be connected to i62642.

Hm. I hadn't thought of this workaround (I'm used to alt+letter keys being keyboard shortcuts). I would agree that it is a duplicate, or at least a variant, of 62642.
