In Writer, is there a keyboard shortcut to select to the end of the document.

E.g. If I have a 50-page document and my cursor is currently on page 12, I can press a shortcut and select everything from page 12 to 50.

The documentation says CTL+ END takes you to the end of the document, but there doesn't seem to be away to make it select to the end.

Environment: Libre Office Version: On Mac OS X 10.14.5

Try with Ctrl Shift End

Thanks, but that doesn’t seem to work. Do I need to enable a setting for it?

You can see in Menu/Tools/Customize/Keyboard what is the key's combination.

Mac uses different key combinations, sometimes it's just a change of Ctrl with , sometimes it's more complicated. You need to check which one is used by your system following the path mentioned by @m.a.riosv

I'm on Windows 10. For me Ctrl Fn End takes you to the end of the document and Ctrl Fn Home gets you to the beginning.

And with Shift, you'll select everything from cursor position to destination.

Use of Fn key depends on BIOS/UEFI setting.
