Description Jonathan Blandford 2008-12-05 22:13:53 EST
I just realized why I lost my document this week...
C-s seems to be bound to underline in OO-impress, so when I thought I was saving a document I was underlining words.
Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2008-12-06 06:40:13 EST
That wouldn't be my own experience, and I imagine the locale is en_US.UTF-8.

Is the shortcut of ctrl+s listed in the file menu beside "save" ?
And if it is, if you create a blank document and whack ctrl+s then the save as dialog should appear, or if already saved and changes have been made then the save icon should be enabled and whacking ctrl+s should make it disable again.

Trying to see if the binding has become attached to something else instead of save in some "formal" way, or if there is some weird cockup
Comment 2 Jonathan Blandford 2008-12-07 22:09:22 EST
My locale is en_US.UTF-8, and I can duplicate it with a blank document.  Save is listed in the file menu as Ctrl+s.  It only seems to be like this in ooimpress, and not oowriter or oocalc.

The Ctrl+S shortcut is really redefined in impress, It's certainly been done by mistake, because, as you can see, underlining is already bound to Ctrl+U.
Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2008-12-08 06:26:59 EST
And I have "Save" there under ctrl+s. I blew away my ~/.openoffice.org* dirs and set to en_US.UTF-8 and started impress and its still ctrl+s for Save.

caolanm->dtardon; can you back up your own ~/.openoffice.org* dirs and do the same, to see if it always reappears as underline after that, of if this might be an issue with the automigration stuff from an older version of OOo ?
Comment 5 Jonathan Blandford 2008-12-08 11:45:31 EST
FWIW, I am getting this with a fresh account.
Comment 6 David Tardon 2008-12-10 03:45:51 EST
Immediate fix is possible by running
cp -f /usr/lib64/openoffice.org/share/config/soffice.cfg/modules/simpress/accelerator/default.xml ~/.openoffice.org/3/user/config/soffice.cfg/modules/simpress/accelerator/custom.xml .
It destroys all custom-defined keyboard shortcuts.

dtardon->caolanm: I can commit it to CVS right now, without any waiting for acks as in RHEL, right?
Comment 7 Caolan McNamara 2008-12-10 04:22:52 EST
Ah, wrong location for en_US translation for accelerators so ends up being the first one found in the dir which must be why it refused to happen for me. I see that the accelerator file *also* as the bindings duplicated as two xml nodes.

Yeah, you can just commit to the fedora one without the pesky rhel ack system. Though I've taken the liberty of committing this one to F-10 and devel. Will be in next F-10 update and in >= rawhide 3.0.1-13.2

Comment 13 David Tardon 2009-05-27 04:07:41 EDT
Anyone still affected by this problem after update to newer version should remove ~/.openoffice.org/3/user/config/soffice.cfg/modules/simpress/accelerator/custom.xml . After next start of openoffice.org fixed accelerators' configuration file will be used.
