Description hambak 2005-10-02 20:05:02 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

1. If you are not running a Korean OS, install support for Korean from

2. In OOo, enable enhanced support for "Asian languages"

3. Open any text file

4. Switch to hangul input (right Alt key with Global IME) and enter a string of
jamo that make up a sino-Korean syllable such as h-a-n (keys g,k,s on a Western

5. Press hanja key (on Korean windows) or Ctrl key (when using Global IME)

6. When the Hangul/Hanja conversion dialog has popped up, tick the checkbox
labeled "Replace by character" using Alt+y, Space

7. Press Alt+s

Actual result:

nothing happens

Expected result:

System caret enters the suggestions box, so you can browse the hanja listed
therein using arrow keys and either select a hanja pressing Alt+r or Enter, or
skip and jump to the next one pressing Alt+i

8. Disappointed, you hit the Tab key many times

Actual result:

System caret jumps around, carefully avoiding the suggestions box

Expected result:

System caret jumps around, sooner or later ending up in the suggestions box

Shouldn't it be possible to access everything without a mouse, just using the
keyboard? Why is the S underlined in "Suggestions" if it does not work? Why is
the N underlined in "Original" in the same dialog? Will a later version of OOo
allow the user to press Alt+n and enter other jamo to form a new syllable to be

Reassigned to ES.

ES->SSA: as seen and discussed.
Depending of the IME mode chosen (with or without latin charcters), this works
when using Ctrl+Z (English mapping) instead of Ctrl+Y.
Another problem is that "y" is used 2 times as mnemonic in this dialog. We may
not be able to fix this and that's another problem but one should think about it
while testing this problem! ;)
