--- Comment #15 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---

Not so sure about all this, since <Ctrl>+<Right arrow> or <Crtl>+<Left arrow>
are advancing at word boundaries/white space. Their behavior actually is
correct when moving across the Paragraph marker and into the next paragraph.

But a look at the Wiki help for LO Writer shortcut keys


suggests better alternatives.  The <End> key is listed as "Go to end of line"
and positions cursor directly to the end of current line--isn't that the
behavior OP is seeking.

Accordingly IMHO I see no reason to change this behavior.

As an aside...

Also, while <Ctrl>+<Down Arrow> is listed as "Move cursor to end of paragraph",
that may never have been correct, or seems to have been changed at some point
prior to the LO 3.3.0 release. That shortcut will actually move cursor directly
the start of the next paragraph.

Matching behavior <Ctrl>+<Up Arrow> which is listed as, and performs, a "Move
cursor to beginning of the previous paragraph".  So guess at some point
behavior of the <Ctrl>+<Down arrow> could have been changed to match that.

Interesting in that <Ctrl>+<Shift>+<Down Arrow> will select text up to the end
of paragraph.

And for what it is worth, the current LO shortcut behaviors are exactly the
same in Word 2013 on Windows 7.
