Description Graham Perrin 2009-04-16 13:18:35 UTC
Shift–Option–Right Arrow
is properly accelerating 

> To the end of the current word, then to the end of the next word

but the Customize dialogue suggests that the modifier keys are shift + Apple. 

Re issue 4756, maybe the dialogue will show the true modifiers when I work with a version of OOo that 
includes mba32issues01.

Screen shot to follow.

@PL: Customize dialog shows for instance Shift+Cmd+Right while the function is
executed over Shift+Alt+Right. This problem applies also to other function of
the Navigate category but I didn't test every function!

Actually you can configure these keys to whatever you like in OOo, it will not
do anything. The Cmd/Shift/Alt combinations can only be configured in the system
itself and reach OOo as a specialized message (e.g. as the "moveWordForward:"
selector), which get translated in OOo to specialized key codes that are not
configurable. E.g. you could use the Shift-Cmd-Arrow key combination in OOo and
it would work as designed - only if you press Shift-Cmd-Arrow it never gets
reported to OOo but instead the system sends
"moveToEndOfLineAndModifySelection:" and OOo does just that.

Currently I don't know of a method to read the system shortcuts, so we cannot
report them to the configuration dialog as "in use". We still need a solution
for that. A preliminary solution could be to adjust the keyboard settings so
they match the standard behavior (in reality nobody will really customize those
system key bindings anyway). This change would be pure cosmetics, as the OOo
configuration for the system key bindings doesn't come into play anyway, but it
would be less confusing to the user.

adding rvojta to CC since he's interested in Mac specific keyboard shortcuts.

It doesn't look like CWS macshortcuts02 is going to make it to 3.2
Comment 7 philipp.lohmann 2010-07-19 15:34:41 UTC
macshortcuts2 is not going to make OOo 3.3
