Description vreher 2010-07-28 20:01:03 UTC
When using using the Customize Keyboard dialog, assignment of writer functions 
to keys Alt+F6, Alt+Left, and Alt+Right appear to "work" but subsequent use of 
those keys do not invoke the assigned function.  Other facts:

1. Assignments of functions to "similar" keys Alt+{F1-F3,F5,F7-F12,Up,Down} 
and Alt+Ctrl+{Up,Down} does work.
2. None of the above keys are assigned to any desktop function (desktop is 
3. Keys appear to work properly in other desktop applications.

@PL: reproducible on Windows too.
- Alt+F6: only executes F6 (cycle between panes). This should be corrected to
allow a mapping to Alt+F6.

- Alt+Arrow keys are internally reserved depending on the context to:
* change width/height of columns and rows in tables
* move/re-size objects by pixel.
-> we should either:
- disable the ability of remapping those shortcuts (like Alt+F4)
- or not hard code those shortcuts and display their default functions in front
of them.

adding cd to CC, who owns Accelerator configuration.

Alt-F6 was erroneously used by the task pane list (which uses F6) - fixed in CWS
vcl114. Alt-Left and Alt-Right I have not found a reason in vcl.

@cd: could you please have a look ?

I noticed that this issue remains with 3.3 RC1.  Can anybody hazard a guess as 
to when it will be fixed?  I am currently mitigating the problem by using 
AltKeyHandler ( ) to process 
the problematic key combos, but would prefer to use Ooo's keyboard 
customization exclusively.
