This is a LibreOffice bug.

LibreOffice does not operate properly on the US keyboard layout on Windows.
It improperly treats the right ALT key as if it is on an International layout keyboard.
So none of your ALT+ or Ctrl+ALT+ etc. key combinations work properly when using the right ALT key.

Tested on Word 2013 and Word 2013 on Windows 7 with a US keyboard setting - all works correctly.
Any combination of left ALT or right ALT with Ctrl or Shift works as expected.

I have added a number of keyboard shortcuts to LO that are obviously missing (e.g. changing the view).
I can only use the left ALT key which makes for some odd habits to hit the right keys.

This is a VERY ANNOYING LibreOffice bug.
It only affects the entire United States ... so not a priority.
