Description lduplant2000 2009-08-21 22:03:56 UTC
This maybe a usability issue I don't quite understand, or a bug. I am using a MacBook with an external 
keyboard (Apple with numeric keypad, configured French Canadian - but I get the same bahaviour with 
English Canada). If I press the backspace key the cell is immediately deleted. If I press the delete key, a 
dialogue box offering several options to delete all, format only, etc. appears. That is normal. However, to 
confirm the delete action one must use the "return" key (mouse clic on the OK button also works). The 
"enter" key on the numeric keypad has no effect.

The "enter" key works the same way as the "return" key when entering data.

With the Windows version, pressing the "enter" key after the "delete" key will confirm the delete action.

NOT reproducible with  "AOO 4.1.0-Dev – English  UI / German locale - [AOO410m1(Build:9750)  -  Rev. 1516435  2013-08-24]" on German WIN7 Home
Premium (64bit)", own separate user profile. Also not with OOo 3.1.1

So might be Mac only or related to special settings on reporter's Computer?

Still a problem for you?

It is still a problem for me.
Thank you.

I did not write, but of course I meant "with a current AOO"!
a) What AOO do you use currently?
b) Does the problem persist if you have renamed your user profile 
   before you launch AOO?

I did a clean install of AOO 4.0.0 US English MAC OS X 10.8.5 today. (i.e. deleted previous user profile and the application itself). Restarted.

The problem persists.

Using Key Codes application here is what I got with the US Extended Keyboard.

Key Down
	Characters:	Return
	Unicode:	13 / 0xd
	Keys:		↵
	Key Code:	36 / 0x24
	Modifiers:	256 / 0x100

Key Down
	Characters:	Enter (numeric keypad)
	Unicode:	3 / 0x3
	Keys:		⌅
	Key Code:	76 / 0x4c
	Modifiers:	256 / 0x100

I hope this helps.
