I wouldn't ask, if the question was answered there. I also wouldn't ask here, if it was Windows key mapping problem. But let's be 100% accurate and repeat the information written above in even more obvious way.

My RIGHT ALT == ALT GR does work PERFECTLY in any application that ain't LibreOffice. I can write ń here, in Chrome. I can do it in Run command, and in Windows Start Menu. I can write it in notepad. And everywhere else, but not in Libre Office. That does cut off Windows local settings, doesn't it? I have Polish -> Polish (programmist) keyboard language setup, Polish Windows setup, and Polish locale setup. You can't be more Polish than that...

Ok, so maybe it's Libre Office settings? NOPE, it ain't. I did check out LibreOffice installed from English installer, and Polish installer, both with all combinations of languages. And always for Tools (Narzędzia) menu item, right alt does work as left alt, which is wrong. Oh, sorry, for English interface setup and Polish locale setup IN Libre Office, first right-alt + n does nothing, and second does write "n".

So, there you go. I don't have a foggiest why you linked up the Wikipedia for Alt Gr - you know, I pretty use it for every day basis here in Poland, and it ain't any surprise to me that right alt and left alt are different keys indeed, so... that seems to be a bit mean. The "similar question" ain't very similar, as there guy does have completely opposite problem: he doesn't want to use Alt Gr as he should, he does want it to work as left Alt - for toolbar highlight. Meanwhile, I wan't the opposite: I wan't to use right alt as Alt Gr for making diacritics letters. And I can do it for every letter I need but n: ę ó ą ś ł ż ź ć. And with ń there is a problem, where Libre Office treats that right alt, Alt Gr as left alt, and turns on the Tool (Narzędzia) menu.

So, after this long and redundant description, can you please help me with my issue, and tell me where is the "magical switch" that turns off the right alt + n interpretation as left alt + n? No, it ain't in keyboard settings in customization, I checked it out. So where may it be? Is there some configuration file with error in it? Or is it a bug that noone understands and noone set it up as a bug to be solved?

Please help. Thank you.
