There are two underscored Cs in the 'Insert' menu, which means that the Alt-I-C keystroke that should work for inserting cross-references does not work properly. One has to hit ENTER to complete the command. Either the underscore should be removed from 'insert s_cript', or the 'insert _cross-reference' command should be given a new keyboard shortcut (I would prefer Alt-I-R, personally) (FWIW I don't think that 'insert footer', which currently lives on Alt-I-R, needs a keyboard accelerator either: one will only be using it at most once per page, after all, but inserting references is much more often: at least once per table, equation and figure, in academic work anyway)

It is too much effort to maintain consistency between mnemonics so that we only fix triplicates not duplicates or when the duplicate falls on a sub menu (impossible then to reach another entry with the keyboard). Please define a shortcut for "Cross-references" under "Tools - Customize".

Why is it too much work? Each time you add a new menu entry, you just need to make sure you don't clash with a prexisting one? Or better still, don't add a mnemonic until it becomes clear that the feature is an often used feature. I used Open Office regularly on several different machines. It is not feasible for me to have a customised environment; the default should just work.
