[KDE] Keyboard Shortcut Shift F12 (Bullets On) Fails
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:41 EST
Description of problem: <Shift><F12> Bullets On feature in writer does not function.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Writer Open Office 2.0.2
Open any existing document or new document. Keyboard Shortcut for Bullet On is
<Shift><F12>. <Contrl><Shift><F12> turns bullets off. Select <Shift><F12> and
Steps to Reproduce:
This works for me in fc-5 updates openoffice.org 2.0.2-5.17.2, so it might be
related to a particular translation, what locale do you run in ? e.g. open a
gnome-terminal and paste in here the output of
I have shift+12 giving me a bullet, and ctrl+shift+21 removing it in locale LANG
of e.g. en_IE.UTF-8
Well, that's very strange. It works for me on FC-5 with openoffice.org
2.0.2-5.17.2 and the same locale. i.e. shift+F12 gives me a bullet, F12 gives me
numering, and ctrl+shift+12 removes both/either.
In tools->customize->Keyboard the keyboard short-cuts are listed, for F12 is
"Numbering On/Off" as expected, shift+12 "Bullets On/Off" is listed as expected,
and "ctrl+shift+12" is remove numbering as expected. Do you have the same
keyboard shortcuts listed for those keys ?
When you said "observe results", were your results "nothing happened", or did
something else happen, e.g. "Insert Table", listed on ctrl + F12.
I have the same. When I said observe results, nothing happened at all.
What's your desktop environment ? GNOME/KDE/Something else. Perhaps the
keystroke is being intercepted by the window manager somehow.
I'm running KDE.
I went through the regional shortcuts assigned for KDE and nothing shows as
assigned for [SHIFT][F12].
I see it now, KDE only, not in GNOME
There you go: http://lists.kde.org/?t=115503074800001&r=1&w=2 and specifically
KDE is eating it for voice recognition.
I don't think there's anything I can do about that.
