Description Michael Osipov 2006-09-27 17:04:53 UTC
New keyboards come w/ new special keys with system-wide functions which aren't
used in OOo.

Keys which should be used:

1. forward and back: switching between pages in writer and sheets in calc
(firefox uses them correctly to go back and forth in history)
2. the F keys do have a second mapping now.
second mapping
F1 -> Help, works
F2 -> undo, works
F3 -> redo, doesn't work
F4 -> new doc, doens't work
F5 -> open, doens't work
F6 -> close, works
F7 -> reply for email, remains unmapped
F8 -> forward for mail, remains unmapped
F9 -> send, doesn't work, could be assigned for sending a document as an attachment
F10 -> spell check, doens't work
F11 -> save, doens't work
F12 -> print, doens't work

both MS and logitech use this mapping

it would be cool if OOo would support this!
