Okay, I think I know where I went wrong with the keyboard fiasco, but I need help setting it right. The reason my navigation arrows and backspace stopped working might be that when I tried to create shortcuts to accented vowels, I saw the "load" button and thought it meant that I could create a file with each letter ad load it in for each designated shortcut. So I made a "Special Character" file for these. But now I think that Libre Office thinks that's where to store keyboard configurations, but can't tap into it, so all of the shortcut keys have disappeared--including basic navigational keys like the arrows.
The question is, where is the right file location, and how do I get it back? Or am I barking up the wrong tree?
This is rather urgent as I've got a deadline in the balance, on 8/21.

Customized keyboard shortcuts are stored in your LibreOffice user profile,
Backup the original file
Open the file
"registrymodifications.xcu" with a text editor.
Search for keyword
Remove all entries, beginning with:
Save the file.
That should restore the default values.
