Hi there

Please could the keyboard shortcuts for inserting and deleting rows and columns
be (a) made consistent with MS Office and (b) made self-consistent as follows:

Add row: alt-I-R
Add col: alt-I-C
(requires finding a new alt-key shortcut for 'insert cells'. In Excel and
Gnumeric, the key for 'insert cells' is alt-I-E)

Delete row: alt-E-D-C-enter
Delete col: alt-E-D-R-enter
(requires finding a new alt-key shortcut for 'redo'. In Thunderbird, Excel,
Gnumeric, gedit and Excel, the key for 'redo' is alt-E-R)

For some reason, 'columns' and 'rows' are given different keyboard shortcuts of
different menus in OO Calc.

Fixing this would be much appreciated by keyboard-inclined users crossing from
MS Office, or those forced to switch between OOO & MSO.


PS This bug was previously reported in 2005 but summarily closed due to being
filed as a multiple-bug-in-one-report.
