             Bug #: 44514
           Summary: LibreOffice: keyboard shortcut bug in Writer after
                    upgrade to 3.4.4
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: LibO 3.4.4 release
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Writer
        AssignedTo: libreoffice-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: johnltw at telus.net

For some time now (probably since OOo v.3.2.x) I've had CTRL+SHIFT+U set to
apply uppercase formatting and CTRL+SHIFT+L to apply lowercase formatting.

Yesterday my Linux distro (Mageia) upgraded from LO v.3.3.x to v.3.4.4 and
suddenly CTRL+SHIFT+U is broken.  If I select a word, the word is clobbered by
a lowercase and underlined "u".  For an instant the text cursor blinks to the
left of the "u" but then suddenly jumps to its right and removes the underline.

All other accelerator key combos still appear to work correctly, which is to
say that CTRL+U by itself underlines selections, my custom CTRL+SHIFT+L
converts  uppercase selections to lowercase, and CTRL+L aligns text to the left

If I bind the uppercase function to another key combo, like ALT+SHIFT+U, it
does work correctly, so the function itself doesn't appear to be the problem;
something has just gone weird with the way CTRL+SHIFT+U is interpreted.


LibreOffice 3.4.4 OOO340m1 (Build:402)
Linux Distro: Mageia 1
Locale: English (Canada)
Keyboard: en_US

I've confirmed this bug on two Mageia boxes, one x86 the other x86_64.  I'm
posting this bug here as I doubt it's specific to my distro.  I'll check if it
effects a WinXP box later today.

I'm otherwise loving LO.  Thanks to everybody here for all your hard work.
