in help the shortcut key ALT+O Displays the options for the current field. This
is not true it list the content of the menu Format.

I think this is annoying. I'm in the middle of migrating from MS-Excel to OOo CALC.
The reason i argue about the 'broken' key is I believe that this is the missing
shortcut for listing the options in the current field.

I use the shortcut ALT+ARROW DOWN in excel then changing criteria in autofilter.
And also for showing the selection list.

It seems that this is impossible mission in OOo CALC. They bother migrating if
you are forced to use your mouse all the time.

So, benjaminsoegaard, can you tell me the right place to get the help 
information about ALT+O ?
