Description Jeremy Scheff 2004-12-10 21:13:44 EST

Description of problem:
In openoffice.org writer, you are supposed to be able to highlight
text and press CTRL+SHIFT+B to make it a subscript.  It worked fine in
the openoffice.org included in fc2, but in fc3, instead of making a
subscript, it turns the character into what first looks like an
underlined capital B and then changes to a space.  Superscript
(CTRL+SHIFT+P) works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open openoffice.org writer and type something in it.
2. Highlight some text and press CTRL+SHIFT+B

Actual Results:  It turns the text into what first looks like an
underlined capital B and then changes to a space.

Expected Results:  The text should be a subscript.

The same thing happens in gnome-terminal. Apparently once ctrl-shift
are held down in X unicode input is enabled, so digits 0-9 and A-F are
trapped, allowing you to input the hex code for a letter. e.g.
ctrl-shift + 5 + 6 gives an underlined 56 while typed and a final V
when released.

Perhaps OOo should change the keyboard shortcuts to disallow
ctrl-shift A-F, it disallows ctrl-shift 0-9 already

move the writer accelerators

i.e. ctrl-shift-H for superscript and ctrl-shift-L for subscript (high/low)
