Literally Libreoffice 6.x became not only a trash but also a very risky tool for the users. Plz refer to my previous questions about the malfunctions of Libreoffice 6.x.

I raise another degraded functionality of Libreoffice 6.x here.

If u alt-f to list the file menu and push 'u' key of CJK input mode to list the recent opened files, you will not only fail but also type a non-intentional key-input into your underneath documents without noticing it. In Libreoffice 5.x this typing didn't work either but it didn't put it into your underneath document at least. That is, it just ignored that input unless u change the input language mode into English from CJK.

So, again, I decided to go back to Version 5.x.

6.x is very dangerous to be used in professional jobs.

QUESTION: Where do I supposed to go to inspect the source code and authors of each code change?

Btw, that appears to be not a LibreOffice bug but a GTK bug on GNOME. If a menu has a submenu as first entry then if one types too fast the next mnemonic key after the Alt+... accelerator, the mnemonic key gets pushed to the window context instead of the menu context. Reproducible in a Gnome Terminal with Alt+F and W (for New Window). If one waits until the first submenu opened this does not happen. But then hovering the mouse over a menu entry with submenu the menu closes.

It has nothing to do with the interval between Alt+f & u in Writer. It's something to do with Version 5.x & 6.x on both Fedora and Archlinux. I always wait enough before the next short-key.

It has to do with interval between key strokes. Hold the Alt key down after Alt+F for 2 seconds and then hit u and you'll see the list of recently used files submenu The difference between LibreOffice 5.x and 6.x is that 6.x at some point started to to use GTK3 menues.
