Description adam.m.s.martin+openofficebugs 2019-04-26 11:52:28 UTC
When editing a document in OOo Writer on Mac, the Home key jumps to start of document (instead of start of line), and End jumps to end of document (instead of end of line).

The bug is that OOo allows you to assign home/end to other values (Tools > Customize > Keyboard) but ignores the assigned values in Writer.

This would be a lesser problem if the hardcoded shortcut values were more useful. Most apps today (even on Mac) allow Home/End to be used for document OR line, and many now use Home/End to mean start/end of line by default. In a wordprocessor, these are frequently used shortcuts. In a wordprocessor, jumping to start/end of document is comparitively rarely used.

I don't understand what you means.
To go to begin of document, the shortcut is Ctrl + Home
Comment 2 adam.m.s.martin+openofficebugs 2019-04-28 15:25:30 UTC
Which OS are you using?

On Mac, it's Home, not Ctrl-Home. Re-defining it in the UI has no effect - pressing Home causes the cursor to jump to start of doc.
Comment 3 oooforum (fr) 2019-04-29 07:08:44 UTC
For Mac, use Cmd instead of Ctrl
But for me, duplicate of issue 102127
Comment 4 Peter 2019-04-29 07:24:08 UTC
Agreed. It seems we have trouble with recognizing Home button on Mac.

I mark this as duplicate and set 102127 as confirmed.

Thanks for the report!
