Crtl+I works for italics and Ctrl+U for underlining, Ctrl+B doesn't.
This shortcut instead is associated with the "justified" alignment (hope it's
the right word for it).
I don't understand why this association has been changed

I classify this as P4 because there's an easy "workaround", perhaps should be P3
for the frequency of use of this shortcut

Funny, works in Draw but not in Impress. Does not work in 3.0 Final.

System Configuration:
OS Name	Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium
Version	6.0.6001 Service Pack 1 Build 6001
System Model	Inspiron 1420
System Type	X86-based PC
Open office :OOO300m15 build 9379

Crtl+I works for italics, Crtl+U works for underlining, but Ctrl+B doesn't bold 
the text.There is one more related issue in open office that talks about the 
same problem.
The open office documentation on the keyboard shortcuts also specified the 
expected behaviour for Ctrl+B
page 6.
1.Create new open office impress file.
2.type text on the slides (plain not bold) the text and press Ctrl+B
Result: text doesn't change to bold.
