Description cno 2007-10-31 07:57:56 UTC
When the Autotext window is open and I use the short cut to of the button
'Autotext', the menu doesn't show up immedeately.
Thus I have to hit space-bar as well.

Could it be possible to show the menu direct, after one uses the short cut?

Reassigned to SBA.

SBA: I am sorry, but I do not understand the scenario you describe.
Could you please give me a step-by-step description like
 - New writer doc
 - [via menu] Edit-Autotext
 - (-> "Autotext" dialog opens)
 - ...
Thank you.

Hi Stephan,
Sorry I was not clear.

- Writer
- Ctrl-F3
- Select an autotext in the list
- you want to do something with that autotext, so use the short cut the is on
the button Autotext.
- Now you have to press space to see the chooises in the menu

I wonder whether we have more buttons of that kind. The only similar one is the "More Options" button. That one works as requested here: Button shortcut immediately does the function "Expand / Collapse more options", no additional space is required. 

Still reproducible with server installation of "AOO 4.1.0-Dev – English UI / German locale - [AOO410m1(Build:9750) - Rev. 1566800 - 2014-02-12]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", own separate user profile.
