I was trying to figure out how to put accent marks into the keyboard, and while I was at it adding a few shortcuts familiar to me, but when I returned to the manuscript, not only did the new shortcuts still not work, but now I don't have the arrow navigation keys, either--and I swear I didn't touch those in customizing the keyboard.
I went back to fix it, found two keyboards, "Libre Office" and "Writer", and neither of them had anything listed for the arrow keys. I tried "Reset" but they didn't come back. I tried to put the directions back in by hand, but the only direction listed under "Navigation" was "Go Right." (Political commentary refrained from out of respect for this board.) Deletions only work forward, too; the "back" key might as well be an ornament. It's not my hardware--all those keys work just fine here on this message.
What happened, and how do I fix it?
In the Customize keyboard dialog (Tools → Customize → Keyboard tab) there is Reset button. Clicking that one might help.
If not, take a look at "Resetting the user profile" in https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#Resetting_the_user_profile
