there is no way to display the list of AutoFilter entries in Calc - at least I did not 
find any hint towards such a functionality.

Most hardcore spreadsheet users, tend to use the keyboard only, as the mouse 
slows down the speed significantly. There should be at least some easily accessible 
option to turn this behaviour on.

This feature would be nice to have.

any chance you could vote for the following enhancement to autofilter

Hi Mathias,

for Validity such fields can be reached using CTRL+D. I think this should be
possible too for Autofilter or an own shortcut for this has to be defined. For
now it's up to you to decide with focus on the people who are used to use
keyboards only. Adjust target as needed too.

CTRL+D combination only shows the list of different values the list has in a 
specific column. What is needed here (as I see the issue description) is a 
function that does exactly what clicking on the little arrows in the right 
bottom corner does, that is, not only showing the values, but also the All, Top 
10, Predetermined filter options, and also you should be able to select on of 
the values and make Calc show the rows in the list with that value.

That would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
